School Network

I need some suggestions on how to do the following. I work at a school and we would like to separate internet access for the office and server room from the classrooms(students). We would like to do this without physically separating the network. We are going to use 2 different ISPs for this. What would be the best way to do this?

The default gateway on the student computers should be set to the IP of the device (or port) with WAN connection A and the default gateway on the office computers should be set to the IP of the device (or port) with WAN connection B.

Can it be done using DHCP?

Sure, the students go into one user class and the office computers go into another user class on your DHCP server and the server will assign the appropriate gateway.

Right now we have 2 ISA firewalls (for redundancy) which connect our whole network to 1 ISP. What would you recommend when adding second ISP. Add a firewall or add network cards on the existing ones?

Since you have 2 firewalls already I would think that adding NICs would be the way to go.
