HAHAHAHA...OK, my apologies if I came off as being sarcastic. Usually it's a good idea to not mix up different manufactures' radios, it reduces the finger pointing when something doesn't work.
As you said you give wireless access throughout the course, I'll assume your current radios are a generic WiFi compatible access points for laptops and smartphones. If my assumption is correct, then yes...most any replacement AP would be compatible.
The Ubiquiti Rocket M2 with a Ubiquiti dual-polarity omni antenna has proven to be a very good performer with laptops and smartphones that have unpredictable polarities. A Rocket and omni will run you around $300. If you can get by using a non-omni sector solution, a Ubiquiti NanoStation M2 with built-in antenna for $90 may be a good solution. Just set the UBNT radios with airMax disabled and 20 MHz channel width.
