1. I doubt I'll actually gain anything from making this a threat instead of a notification or a warning of a vulnerability.
I definitely wouldn't make it a threat. Just inform them or don't and be on your way. Also, I wouldn't follow through with it if you have told someone else that would be attending school with you for which should be an obvious reason.

That would be the worst possible thing you could do. So many times and mostly with these "letting the school know" situations people get caught up. Either getting suspended, expelled or fined or even a combo of the mix and making a way worse situation then really needs to be.

Well, this may make it a better time to let them know. I'm not saying you are, but don't just do this for notoriety. Aim for more a ninjaesc method. Go unseen for as long as possible. Whatever you do decide to do, don't mention one bit of it to anyone. People like to talk and one way or another I'd be willing to bet that it will end up coming back to bite you in the ass. Just not worth it.

It's good mental exercise and maybe a good test environment.

If you go with the ransom note method (lolz) you could just mail it to the school with an attn: to the head of whoever is in charge of the IT department.
Good luck with whatever you end up doing.
