Most likely the folder above the home folders has a security permission that the home folders are inheriting that is allowing either Everyone or Domain Users rights to all the home folders.

Or, if you want to make the folder a "hidden share", place "$" on the end of the share name. This hides each users indivivual folder from all other users. Plus, as mentioned above, check the permissions on the upper level folder.

Change the sharing to the actual users root folder (\\server\user$) and add the $ to the share. map the user to that share. Also take Domain Users out of the sharing permissions and add domain admins and the actual user.
