There's an official FAQ for Mac, just as there is for Windows.
There's also a Mac-specific email help list.

Most R code will run as well or better on Mac. All of the OS problems
I've run into tend to be problems with Windows. It's a bit harder to
get some geospatial stuff working on Mac, but that's unlikely to be a
problem with your elementary stats students.
