    Your first sentence implies that you're classmates are taking illicit drugs.

    You're second sentence is the best choice for what you're trying to express. The term is 'high spirits'.

    The third and fourth sentences aren't wrong, but the adjectives strike me as being a tad too strong. I don't think you're schoolmates are quite that happy to be in class.
