This is an interesting question because it was one of my favorite books in high school. At that time, I looked at it as a great adventure story that inspired the ability to make lemonade out of lemons. Later in life, it came to mean more in terms of a commentary on society and political influence.
So, in writing an essay, look at some ideas around mentorship, leadership, political influence, and social values. Answer questions like, do the ends justify the means?
In a contemporary analogy, what kinds of considerations might be made in terms of political persecution and imprisonment? What is the value of governmental controls? How can the anger of a single person influence actions? What is gained in the end when one pursues the course of revenge?
This could be a fascinating essay. It could also provide a great analysis of contemporary political thought.

You could easily argue either side--that it was justified or that it wasn't. What will make or break your argument are the details that you use to support your thesis.
It sounds like your arguments come from "the ends don't justify the means" philosophical school of thought--that his methods were not justified because of the immoral results. Great philosophers have used such arguments, so it sounds good...
The following is found in the wikipedia article. Be sure to cite your source if you use it in your essay.
It is primarily concerned with themes of justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness,
The film The Shawshank Redemption features many of the same themes as The Count of Monte Cristo. It centers on Andy Dufresne, a man falsely imprisoned, who eventually makes a daring escape from prison. He then attains a large sum of money which he had amassed in prison, and achieves vengeance upon those who wronged him while in jail. The Count of Monte Cristo itself is mentioned in the movie.

Like husoski, I'm not going to write your assignment for you. However, I will give you an overview of how I would approach the problem and if you post code I will give you feedback.
The state of the population can be reduced to two numbers: how many students are uninfected and how many contact events are yet to be simulated (contacts_todo). To simulate the outbreak, simulate each contact event until either everyone is infected or there are no more contact events to simulate. The result of a simulation is the number of uninfected students at the end.
To simulate a single contact event, subtract one from the contacts_todo counter and toss a 10% coin to decide whether the contact is successful or not. If it is unsuccessful nothing more needs to be done. If it is successful 'infect' a person by subtracting one from the uninfected count and adding a random number in the range 0 to 20 to the contacts_todo counter.
To kick off a simulation, manually infect a person by subtracting one from the uninfected count and adding a random number in the range 0 to 20 to the contacts_todo counter. Then you can dive into the main loop: as long as there are uninfected students and the contacts_todo counter is greater than 0, simulate a single contact event.
All the information you need to answer the questions is how many students are uninfected at the end of an outbreak simulation. For question 1, make lots of simulations to find the average number of uninfected students after an outbreak. From that calculate the probability of a person who is not the original patient remaining uninfected (or becoming infected) during an outbreak. For question 2, make lots of simulations and keep track of the proportion of simulated outbreaks that finished with 10 or more infected students (i.e. 260 or less uninfected students).
