Suppose my school is about 2 kilometers from my house.

I was walking to school but I stopped to talk with many people several times on the way.

That was not a continuous journey, but a broken journey.

The journey was interrupted by many stops, but I still made it to school.

Can we still use "all the way" in that situation?

Does "I walked all the way to school" refer to a continuous movement without stops on the way to school?

All the way here means that you covered the whole journey on foot. It says nothing about whether or not you made any stops on the way.

No, the expression is valid whether you so or not. But if the trip took a few days, say, I would expect the speaker to elaborate on why a short trip took a long time.
