These services can be used both in the classroom with students and/or across grade level teachers. I use Dropbox to share files that pertain to our PLC with my fourth grade colleagues.
Dropbox just started allowing you to make all files and folders a linkable link. You can share any file as a link. This was only available for files in your public folder. The video below show how to create links to files in the public folder. Now you can do this same process with all files in any folder.
Here is the pricing for Dropbox:

Box.net offers a more collaborative experience but lacks the desktop syncing on the Mac for the free account. The collaborative experience is better than Drive and Dropbox. Also there is a Google Doc integration feature. You can create a Google Doc in Box and share it to others.
The above video shows how syncing can be done in the non-free accounts like their Business and Enterprise accounts.
Here is Box.net’s pricing: https://www.box.com/pricing/ (Free 5GB, 15/Month for 3+ Users, Unlimited)
Drive: 5GB free, 25GB $2.49 a month, 100GB $4.99 a month, 16TB $799 a month
Dropbox: 2GB free, 50GB $9.99 a month or $99 a year, 100GB $199 a year
Box: 5GB free, 15/Month for 3+ Users, Ask for Unlimited Pricing
Here is a side by side comparison to these services: http://goo.gl/vFGdD
I personally use all three. I like the desktop syncing with both Google Drive and Dropbox. Hopefully Box with have that feature coming soon for the free account. I also use Box and like the collaborative sharing features it has. I am still trying to decide on Google Drive. Maybe all three can be used in your workflow.
