What 3D printer do you recommend for middle school programs?

We have used a few different brands of 3D printers in our middle school STEM program and they haven't been successful in withstanding the amount of use.  They seem to be broken for the majority of the time.  I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations of brands of 3d printers that are resilient.

In my middle school days, we used to make use of 3D printers of resilient quality. For STEM project also we used to make objects by the same kind of 3D printer. Previously 3d printers we were using was of very bad quality. Any small scratch, or bend would lead to damaging some or the other part of it which was very difficult to repair. Then our school's team of professors researched for tough 3D Printer, searched various websites, took guidance with experts in this field and then brought new 3d printer. It was the one which was backed by Selective Laser Sintering technology using CAD software package.
