Help with Classroom flooring

We have a school, 3 classroom rooms size 60 sq.ft each. have harsh low grade ceramic tiles. What is the best type of flooring to use? Will vinyl tiles do the job? What kind of glue to use or should we buy the ones that have glue? The school is located in very hot and humid area. Where can we find the best prices?

Thanks in advance

What's the motive in replacing the ceramic? As far as wear, ceramic will certainly "make the grade" as long as it was put in well. It'll certainly handle heat and humidity!
As far as vinyl tile in a high traffic situation:

this type is excellent. Don't confuse it with linoleum. I believe however, that it needs routine waxing or it will begin to accumulate scuff marks and stains. Unlike ceramic. It's put down using mastic that is spread with a notched trowel, the size of which is recommended on the box of tile. Big job your talking about, taking up ceramic in order to replace with something else.

The ceramic tiles, are very old, low grade, and looks very badbad. Also some areas have cracks, and small holes.
