Find out who administers your school system and ask them.

But obviously they'll want to know what it is that you want to do.

The trick is you don't. If the firewall is set up correctly
You won't be able to do a thing about it.

You can set up a box outside network
and tunnel through it to the outside
world. It will work b/c your box is
initiating the connection.

People who want and need free internet access and not just P2P use this technique.
