Setting up DHCP for Lab on single AP

Every classroom in my building has an AP in it. What I'm wondering is how to set up DHCP on just ONE access point that is going to be in a computer lab. 

My thoughts are to create a dhcp server. Create a new SSID and user profile. The user profile has ip firewall policy to allow acces to dhcp.

Am I on the right path?

Hi,
Right on the firewall, but you don't need a new SSID. You can have the same SSID but different users/user profiles. Set these users to go to a different VLAN and then set up the DHCP server and agent for that VLAN IP range.
