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.

I hated when we were told to take things from the students. Sometimes other teachers sent someone to my class to get me and then they would ask me to do it for them because they thought I had some special technique. My technique was to tell them if they would please give it to me I would give it right back after class and then if they would just please keep it out of sight for the rest of the day I would appreciate it because I could probably get in more trouble than they would. That worked almost everytime because otherwise the item would probably end up in the dean's office until a parent would come and get it. In my own class, of course, kids often took advantage of my refusal to take their property, putting my job on the line by openly using electronic gadgets in class, even when I asked them not to. Two kids even made a video of this girl cussing me out for no reason just because they thought it was funny. They played it back in class and laughed. I felt humilated.

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

In school and outside it follows that people are jerks who ain't worth shit. I'll Admit I've done my share of teacher mongering but I never messed around with teachers who didn't act like I was inferior to them.

Wow its been a long time being here and even looking at these posts I can barely remember school.

Re: Referals Of Stupidity

lets see:
2nd grade - detention for play fighting with friends on the play ground.
3rd grade - for saying "watermelon bomb" while play fighting with friends on the playground.
4th grade - for kicking a kid who bite me on the shoulder, and then not talking with my bitch of a teacher about what happened.
6th grade - for writing my opinion on an oil spill "whom ever spilled the oil and did nothing to clean it up or alert someone that oil was spilled, is a jack-ass monkey fucker."
7th grade - me and a friend were sent out of class for doing the missing work we had, when the teacher asked us to do it.

recently I received detentions for Leaving school grounds( went across the street that has a cross-walk and a light to get food) and skipping my first and second period classes, cause I got up late and was hungy so I walked home ate breakfast and came back.
