I found a couple of free ones on Google. Unless you have a high speed connexion available, using these might be more hassle than waiting for Word to launch. And if you have an unstable connexion that disconnects without warning, you could easily loose anything already typed. Additionally, your school may block such activity because of security or bandwidth considerations.
The simplest solution would be to do your word processing at home; if you do not have Office installed, you can get a very viable alternative from OpenOffice.org that will allow you to save texts as Word files, which you could save to disk and take to school.
