File errorPage.jsp must be placed inside school folder in the root of your website.

                  | errorPage.jsp

I have done what you have said but still doesn't work although I save configuration after modification of web.xml

I would tell that my server is running on Centons , is it the problem ?
pleasse I need help with this

What is the name of your web application? If it's school, then trying removing /school from the URL pattern. It should work. Also, specify the location of all your resources wrt the web app root i.e. exclude the `school' directory.
