See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Xapi

The new query system is Overpass API, which has basically superseded XAPI. It is a fairly simple task to extract the data for a limited region. However, overall there are about 800,000 objects tagged amanity=school in the database, so this is too much to handle for Overpass API in a single request.

If you are determined, you can split the world into several regions and download the list of schools for each separately. (Make sure to increase the timeout parameter, the default is somewhat low.)
