    There's no such thing as a quick MS-Lic question, I have sent a PM. As always the answer is it depends... WHat you are currenlty running, what you want to move to, and how often you want to upgrade.

    Edit: Oh, and how many Physical servers you have, if you have 1 or 2 physical servers with a load of VM's you could save a bundle with Server 2012 Datacentre

    You're probably in the area where a Schools Agreement would be cheaper than an EES agreement. You might also want to look at buying the licenses outright rather than a subscription if you have a long lifecycle for desktop and server OS upgrades.
    I would go and speak to a MS licensing reseller and get some quotes for all the options.
