Yes, there is a way to make your car seem as if it is not towable or make it most difficult for a tow truck driver to be able to tow your vehicle while in school. The option is for you to parallel park your vehicle on the street.

When parallel parking your vehicle in the middle of the street in between cars will make the tow truck driver unable to get to your vehicle to tow it. By the line of cars in front and behind your vehicle the driver will not be able to hook any cables to your vehicle to successfully tow the vehicle.
