Can we use Marie est en l'école" in place of "Marie est à l´ecole"

Bonjour Anish !

You will never use en in French to express "at", and here are the two possible cases with school:
Je suis à l'école.          I am at school.
Je suis dans l'école.   I am in the school.

See our lesson on en versus dans with locations:
En vs dans with locations (prepositions)">En vs dans with locations (prepositions)">En vs dans with locations (prepositions)">En vs dans with locations (prepositions)

Bonne journée !
