If it is a corp edition it should work but it is highly illegal.

Since the school paid for the Corp Edition they have the rights to the key. It would be like using a serial found on the net to activate XP.

Edit:

Not to mention that if M$ questions the school why someone outside of their IP address range activated Windows you could get into a lot of trouble.

Not only from M$ for basically stealing a key but from your school that could take legal action and kick you out.

Okay to answer your first question M$ would notice that the serial was being activated outside of the schools normal IP range. So they would contact the school and ask them why.

Which in turn would lead them to found out who owns the IP address that activated it with their serial. Which would lead to you. But that is all worse case sinerio.

To answer your 2nd question that breaks the rules of the forum. You should know this.
