You could save each of the configurations /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 and /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0
to templates and write some scripts in ~/bin that will copy over the current ones and start or stop ( or restart ) whatever service you need to. For example, save the configuration for your wireless device using dhcp. Suppose you named it ifcfg-school. Do the same for the home based wlan0 and eth0 config files. Then write a simple script that copies over the current value from the template, and then stops, starts or restarts whatever service that you need to.
Give these scripts mneumonic names, such as "school" and "home" or "net-school" and "net-home" and copy them to your path, such as in ~/bin. Entering "sudo school" will set up your configuration and you'll be ready to go in a few seconds.
I think this would be easier than using profiles. Make sure that the templates are readable only by root so that noone else can read the WIRELESS_WPA_PSK value from your wireless configuration.
If you wanted to, you could change the sudo configuration to allow yourself to execute these two scripts in particular as root without having to enter a password. That would speed up the process by a few seconds.
