Don't fall into the trap of thinking that every word which ends in 'S' is a plural - it isn't! That is just for nouns, and even then there are a few exceptions.

The different forms of the verb "to go" are like any other verb forms.

He goes to school.

This means he goes to school every day. If you wanted to talk about just one occasion, you might say:

He went to school today.


He is going to school today.

    I go, you go, he goes, we go, they go. As Astralbee says, goes isn't a plural, it's just the way the verb works. Commented Dec 18, 2019 at 13:19
