In my experience its better to have more ltspservers with few clients
each, to avoid the issues you have raised. There is nothing worse than
the whole computer lab grinding to a halt, and kids start saying "these
computers are rubbish, you should use windows".
Could you buy cheaper servers (eg. dual or quad core hobby PCs with SATA
and 4 RAM slots; 16 port switch) and run 15 clients each? Now I have <
12 clients per server. Each server costs me around USD1000.
Of course you would double your server maintenance, which may be
important in your case.
