You generally need to use a Server Side Scripting language like PHP, ASP (or ASP.NET) or CGI. Maybe a COM object (I don't know enough about IIS programming to answer that acurately though as I use Apache + PHP mostly).
However, I started DB programming a few years ago using Access, IIS and ASP on an NT 4 workstation via an ODBC interface.
Seeing as this is a MySQL forum, you should probably post at some of the other forums on dbforums.com.
Also look in the Access Help pages (RTFM) there's a tool in there that i think creates an HTML page automatically with some client side VBScripting that might connect directly to the DB.
Remember though: Access is not really suited to handling many requests, if it's for your school, and for students to access, consider upgrading to MS SQL Server, or even better MySQL.
