The ce vs. il/elle question is driving me crazy! I've created a detailed flowchart and I still get them wrong. Why is this "C'est"?
"Elle" is used when expressing an opinion of a specific thing, here, a school. Your own example uses, "Tu aimes mon pull? Oui, il est très beau." How is this any different?????
I think the point here is that it's not actually the school that is "interesting", it's the general experience of being at school.
Try here, it may restore your sanity:-
As a crutch: if the verb of the sentence is "être", use "ce". The cases where you'd use "il/elle" with "être" are rare.
Here are 2 examples with an explanation which I hope clarifies it all for you:
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
