if you put all the students in a class into a group (ie class1)
this won't be a problem
it'll be a bit of a hassle to set up when you're creating users in unix 
but you don't have to do anything special to do this in samba.

there is a web browser interface to samba that will let you create
shares. I think it is possible to use the native windows tools to add
users and modify groups, and it is certainly possible to set permissions
with native windows tools.

You may want to get a hold of webmin to let non unix users do sysadmin
tasks like adding and modifying users.

I use an ldap environment with the smbldap-tools from unav
to manage users. not hard to set up.
