You might be right about ActiveSync; perhaps your school is only 
supporting that, rather than full Exchange w/Oauth2.  As for MM, I think 
the OAuth2 option only becomes available after entering the appropriate 
server hostnames for IMAP & SMTP (and maybe even hitting "apply").  
Also, I think r5757 is needed.

Good luck.
