Here's an interesting question: financial status of students. We can assume that Nezumi either has a terribly tragic backstory, or he miraculously has a family but is still the same snarky Nezumi, even if he is left up. I was just wondering about it because I feel like Inukashi, being born and raised in the West Block in canon, would be on reduced lunch. And Safu would notice, and start bringing him food, and then mention it to Shion who would be like, "Holy flip, my mother is baker, why didn't someone tell me?" and just bring Inukashi different kinds of muffins every day.
And Inukashi wouldn't want to accept it, necessarily, but I think he has less pride than Nezumi, so he might be of the mindset that, "if they want to waste their time and money on me, why should I say no?"
Besides, no one can resist Karan's muffins. No one.

Going back to the question of how do Nezumi and Shion meet, I think the class rep thing is a bit overdone. I mean, did they even have those in your high schools? They didn't have them in mine...
I'm thinking of something more along the lines of: one time in middle school Shion did something nice for Nezumi. He hasn't forgotten this.
Skip to present: Because of this, Shion has Nezumi's interest. Because HS AUs are nice and domestic, they could then meet for some really, really innocuous reason... like, just that Nezumi wants to get a date. Could be simple as that.
But Shion is too oblivious to know he's being pursued, so maybe not so simple.

An amusing idea: Shion is getting picked on, Nezumi steps in to defend him, and then Shion is just like, "those guys were making fun of me? I didn't even notice!" and Nezumi's like, "Well then how am I ever supposed to be your knight in shining armour you are foiling me at every turn please notice me already I'm starting to think you're asexual or something gogdamnit"
