That's odd. There's no reason to block Minecraft on School Computers.

The computers on our school is way too weak to handle any kind of games. :/

They obviously don't want kids playing games during school. Thus why pretty much every flash game website ever is also blocked. Do you have websense? It's also possible that your school uses the generic websense rules that every school does which bans all gaming websites and they didn't specifically block Minecraft.

Because Minecraft is a game.
You shouldn't actually be able to play it during lunch because lunch is for eating.

Sorry, what? I couldn't read what you were saying because I was too busy play Killing Floor during my lunch period.

Yeah, mine's blocked too, but we use proxies. Still cant play it though.
Our school has shitty processors, and basically, you have no control over what you can do with the machine,
other than open internet explorer

Because it distracts you from learning.
God, I hate people who complain about school rules that aren't truly retarded.
Especially these three:
No weapons
No computer games
No snowballs
Use common sense.
If the above post offends you, you are an insolent fool and should be punished by demons and their demonic methods. I'm sorry, it's just the rules.

What the above users have said about proxies and such. Also, the majority of school computers are extremely weak, and most likely will not be able to run any sort of games, let alone Minecraft.

My highschool used to block the ports for the fad game in our time, Tibia. I would recommend HTTP tunneling. Send all your ports through port 80.

but hey, MC is fun in single player too (something tibia never had) so just throw it on a flash drive or something?

Minecraft is blocked at schools because it is a game, and they don't want you playing games when your supposed to be learning.

If you really want to, though, download this and put it onto a flash drive. (Use at your own risk, don't blame me when you get caught)

Kids these days don't know how good they have it. Back when I was a kid we had to make do with playing Oregon Trail at school. And that shit was real too... people died.

With that being said I can't wait for that thing that was talked about a while ago about getting a version of Minecraft to be used at shools. I'm skeptical that it's even being worked on considering they haven't given any updates on the subject.
