Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic

A splash of fresh bleed into the pan before passing stool, is the classical description of hemorrhoids. However, since you have ruled out external bleed and hemorrhoids at the school health center, the bleed may be from higher up. Blood when you wipe also suggests the same. Proctoscopy/colonoscopy may have to be done, to localize the site of bleed. Kindly consult a surgeon in this regard.
