Harry turned around to see Professor Lupin, who looked both shaken and pleased.

Although perhaps many students can't recognize a Patronus.
Could be, I always felt the description was pretty vague myself.

Prisoner of Azkaban Bloomsbury edition - P 194He didn't stop to think. Plunging a hand down the neck of his robes he whipped out his wand and roared, 'Expecto Patronum!'
Something silver white, something enormous, erupted from the end of his wand.

As you say though I doubt many if any of the student body would have recognised it for what it was. Certainly the staff would but I doubt any of them would have thought to forward such information to the ministry.
