In the Folder Class1, share ang give permissions to everyone.
In the other folders go to the security tab and give permissions only to the user or users that you want to allow access.

Ok, you only need to define permissions on the folder.

Fo example  if click proprieties on the folder that you want to share you have a box that says permissions you only need to define what user can access your share.

Yeah thats what I would do also.  But there are multiple students using the same account to access the server.  So I would want them to be able to choose their foler on the server and be prompted for a password,
