Try and find the power box before you go in. Shut off power and wait a few days in case the system has a battery backup. After that break a window, go in for a few minutes, then go back outside for an hour or more to see if anyone shows up. If all clear you should be good to roam around inside as long as you want.

Most security systems have a battery backup. They also report when power is lost and when the battery is running low, so people will know that power has been cut and will send someone to restore it, usually before the battery backup runs out. I know this because ive installed and works on these systems. They are hard to beat.

I know they exist but I doubt an abandoned school will have those resources. I am willing to bet they gutted most computer equipment which would include battery banks and generators.
