Hello Harlina-- and welcome to English-test.net.

This sentence is correct:

My house is near the school. (I mean my house is not far from the school.-- Your first sentence does not tell us that it is your school.)

Near as a preposition takes an object: 'I live near my school.'
Nearby is an adverb: 'My school is nearby'.

No. 'Besides' means 'also'.
