RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

So I found out I might get kicked out of school

A few weeks ago, I got a detention for being late to school. The next three weeks it happened three more times. I got called in to the Guidance Counselours office after a 5th week, (I was on time that week btw) and she JUST NOW informs me that each detention I have gotten was a refferal. A FREAKING REFFERAL. This means, I just got 4 refferals without knowing it. She put on her strict, bad cop Counselour voice, and said that I couldn't get one more detention or I would be removed from the program and the school. I got put on what was called " Disiplinary Probation. " BUT, there's hope.

She told me about a thin line I can walk to save myself till the end of the year. I got taken out of my Geography class, which I had been in for a month, and put into a remidial Math class. The class is a math modules on the computer. This is called the " Forgivness Plan " Trouble is, I missed a month of work, so I have to make up like, 5 modules that each take a week. I manage to get to #6, but Only have three weeks left. If I get a C at the end of the semester, I pass and don't get kicked out. If I don't, then I get to pick out a new school.

That's my story.

tl;dr - Got 4 refferals without knowing it, got put on a silver lining plan, still might fail and be kicked out.

Re: So I found out I might get kicked out of school

they kinda been playing that game with me. if your good at the math you should be fine. but yea that sucks dick.

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.
