I also teach highschool, and I have let quite a few students listen to some of my headphones. They often have conversations about music and headphones, and I feel that it's our job to teach young people (that don't already) how to get the most out of the music that they listen to. They spend so much of their time listening to music, they might as well hear what it's actually supposed to sound like.
That said, I don't think it's our job to push them to buy $3000 worth of equipment. It's enough to get them to appreciate good sound enough to go out and buy a Grado 60i or Shure 440 or something else in that range. If they get into it, they will seek more out from there.
I've had a few students talking up their Skullcandies or Bose, and I always let them A/B with my Shures or Beyers. That usually ends that nonsense in a hurry.
