Rick Scherer here... for the life of me I can't remember what my handle was on Choice2k, but I attended the inaugural year of the 94-95 school year.

Living in Perris at the time my only option for middle school (this was my 7th grade year) was Tomas Rivera Middle School, which I attended the 93-94 school year.
My parents weren't too happy with Tomas Rivera, and had heard about Choice 2000 opening up -- I thought it was cool at the time as I enjoyed playing on the computer.

My life within Choice 2000 was short, but it had really set the foundation for the rest of my life. Due to the way the courses worked I was able to complete my 7th and 8th grade school years in that single year. I also met some good friends that I would keep for the rest of my life, Mike Burris, Brett Cohen, Teal Renzema, Antonio Rodriguez, Jennifer Loeffler, and Jayden Shutt come to mind.

In 1995 we moved to Menifee, which a new high school had opened up (Paloma Valley) - accelerating into 9th grade I decided I would like to experience in-person high school. School was great, but I suppose it just wasn't for me, in 1997 I decided to take the CHSPE which effectively tested me out.

Fast forward, I'm now married with twin boys living in Temecula and working for Dell Technologies.
I look forward to catching up with all of you on this board!
