I want to count points (1000 of students home) in district polygons with Qgis 2.16. I didn't find the tool in the analysis tools plugin.

Is there another plugin or method I could use to perform this task ?

The tool you're looking for is now called Count points in polygons, and it can be found in Processing Toolbox -> QGIS Geoalgorithms -> Vector analysis tools.

Try this Points in polygon, there is a tutorial for you

If you have trouble finding the tool, check Points in Polygon missing from QGIS 2.16.x?
