The Beryl is just another computer, it is not magic. If you have root or admin privileges on your laptop and cannot get around the school’s VPN blocking, then the Beryl probably will not help. If your PC is locked down by the school, then the Beryl might be able to help, as you will have admin/root privileges on it that MAY let you get around their VPN blocking.
Now I will ask the adult question: Is it worth getting suspended for going around the schools policy? I don’t know about your specific school, but most schools do not take kindly to bypassing their security.
I am not quite sure what you meant by the quote above.
Are you saying if I did not have admin privileges to my own laptop due to the school’s wifi network policy, then the Beryl might be able to help me bypass this and get me admin privileges on my own laptop?
There are several ways to block vpn: block IP of servers, blocking ports and blocking protocol.
If only IP of server is blocked, you can change to other vpn services
If ports (generally 1194) is blocked, you can change to other ports, e.g. 443. Most vpn service providers provide 443 port
If your school block opnevpn, then need to try other protocols, e.g. wireguard. If wireguard is not usable, you may need to try http proxies. Some vpn service provider provide proxies, but this is not supported on the router.
If still have problems, try v2ray, shadoesocks etc which are very hard to detect.
