Fedora information can be found at:

License info can generally be found here:

Specific End User License Agreement for Fedora Core:

There are trademark and other restrictions if you plan on 'repackaging'
for other purposes and or selling it - mostly GNU type restrictions.

But specifically to answer your question, you may install on as many of
your school (or corporate) computers as you wish.
