if you have 20 buildings, you must create 20 subnets as minimun.
try to isolate the public ports (any one can conect) like computers labs rooms
from the used by people that work in the school (administratives offices)
also, try to isolate floors or rooms so you can arrive to this room and review
the pc that are connected (the subnet may be of 32 or 64 hosts)
put an special area (on his own subnet) by building to allow students to
connect his cumputers.
request help from the labs administrators and the workers of the school to
watch for person that get pc or laptop inside labs (maybe must search inside
bags) and if the problem happen, at least you know some faces.
