Somehow my school blocked Steam. Anyone help?

Without a proxy. Actually even with the proxy our school never blocked Steam. But now that they stopped using one, I can't download with Steam anymore. And my school has 20+x faster connection(literally) than my house.

Anyways, is there any way to get past this? It doesn't actually say anything is blocked, Steam simply cannot use the connection at school, it just says "No Connection" despite there being one.

Would you consider VPN a proxy? If so the you could tether your phone for a data connection. Hopefully you have an unlimited data plan though. Another option is unsecured wireless connections.

The last option is to change your name to something kewl like Acid Burn and become a 1337 haxx0r and bypass the firewall.

essentially this, I don't even play online, I just need the download because my home ISP has a 3GB/day cap.

The school network is not your personal network. Download your personal stuff at home.

Well, I use to be the guy on the other end of that network blocking steam (and porn... lots of porn) from kids at school.

Thankfully I had a pretty solid boss and an admin staff that supported technology. So I always got to come down pretty hard on those trying to bypass our filters.

Make sure Steam isn't using peer to peer. When I was in college, if you tried to torrent, the connection would just shut off.
