New Router/Gateway

I'm planning on replacing my cisco 2800 series router. I currently have 13 AP's expanding to a total of about 20 AP. The AP's will serve anywhere from 120 to 200 wireless clients. This will be primarily students on Chromebooks. I currently have the aerohive switch SR2224P, 2 netgear JGS524 switches, and a netgear FS728TP switch. I also have about 72 hard wired devices which includes an IP phone system. I am looking for something that is easy to configure and includes DHCP server and VLAN support. Any recommendations on which router/gateway to get?

We're still using Cisco for L3 and have recently migrated from 2800 series routers to L3 switches. You might want to look at the 3850 line.

On second thought, you may even want to look into a firewall. Cisco, Fortinet, and Watchguard come to mind regarding simplicity. It could grant greater traffic control.
