Try using the default flag for setfacl.  I always have this problem with setfacl:

$ setfacl -m g:students:rwx foo

doesn't work, but I have better luck with

$ setfacl -d -m g:students:rwx foo

I don't know why, it seems like it should work with the first setup but it rarely does for me.

And if THAT doesn't work, I connect to the share as an admin Windows user (administrator in your case) and set the ACLs using Windows Explorer.
