Newbie question on ip_hash

Why does ip_hash only use the first 3 octects of the IP address?

The reason I ask is that we run we servers for a number of schools. Each
school is going the be their own subnet, ranging from a /24 to a /20 in
size. Since ip_hash will lump everyone from a /24 in the same hash, it
will direct them to the same server, correct?

If I am correct above, is there any way to create persistent connections
based on the full IPv4 address?
