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.

HEll Yes this is absolutely fucking ridiculous
This just showes how much of a failure our education system is...

This is absolutely ridiculous..Absolutely fucking ridiculous


ok. MY older brother just got a saturday detention. Now your all gonna be like big woop who cares. But theres a twist.
He had a popular video on youtube called the donkey song (has now been removed) It was just them singing a random song that was renknown within their school. Now get this. He got a saturday detention for writing BBC and Chittendon in the tags. His principle (Dr Chittendon A.k.a. Shittendon) said that was offensive and giving the school a bad name. Now by saying that hes just given himself a bad name internationally. Half of MY school knowes about half of HIS school knowes about it you know about it. Guess what. Its like a virus. Its just going to keep spreading and give the school a bad name, the very thing shittendon didnt want to happen in the first place. Everyone thought the school was fine until now. Half of my fucking city will know about it soon, well maybe not that much but still. Now he has to wright an opology letter saying, you know everything i did was terrible and i deserve to be sentenced to death type thing

So heres summary part 1: My older brother got a saturday detention for putting TAGS thats right people TAGS on a video on youtube. WHAT A FUCKING DIPSHIT.

Now heres summary part 2: He was in every fricking right to post those tags you motha fucka and you cant give somebody a detention for something on the internet unless its like cyber bullying or something like that. This is fucking ridiculous........

so I stole your good luck stick charm ey? Why dont you just sue me??????

holy fucking shit. if i were your brother i would just not go. we've got to put an end to school and if we can't do that, at least put an end to these fucked up punishments.

the teachers are turning more and more into dictators and now, anything you do inside or outside of school could be punishable if they feel like it.

Sounds to me like the principal dude is a bit insecure about his name. Poor guy. I feel sorry for him. He's gonna have a hell of a hard time keeping that video off the internet. He might fight it all his life. Poor sap.

As for the detention... don't go? Razz
