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.

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.

nervous about trying to leave school tomorrow

Last week on Wednesday I had a confrontation with the grade level chair telling her that I'm not gonna come to school tomorrow or ever again. Then she told me we have to have a meeting with the high school principal and that I'm gonna lose my credits if I give up (like I give a fuck bout my credits) I told her my mom didn't want a meeting because she is tired of so many meetings and it stresses her out everytime but the damn grade level chair wouldn't listen, I wanted to punch her in the boob so she can shut the fuck up so I just walked away because I didn't want to continue arguing with her. The next day I went to school but I stayed in an office the whole day because I didn't want to be in class wih the tensions in the air, apparently people heard the argument I had with the level chair, then on Friday I didn't go to school and teachers called my parents but I didn't really care. Today I didn't have school because of memorial day for this so called land of the free bullshit country, my mom told me she was gonna go tell the school tomorrow about making a meeting so I can leave for good. I already told the counselor about my plan if I leave my school and to my surprise she didn't have a problem with it she actually supported me but I didn't tell the teachers because I was afraid they would try to convince me to stay. I'm afraid my anger would get the best of me tomorrow and make the situation worse also the middle school principal keeps asking me if I have been to a therapist to discuss about my feelings and its been pissing me off when she keeps asking me that my mom already has a piece of paper that the school gave her a few years ago so she can take me to a therapist but she hasn't taken me because she doesn't want me taking medicine that's suppose to make me "normal". I don't have a disorder so I don't need medication. I have been absent many times and have a lot of community service hours to make up.( I'm not a bad guy causing trouble but everyone in my grade has to do like 60 hours of commuty service in one school year orr else they will be retained but this yearif u didn't to do ur service hours you will have to stay in school longer after the school year ends to make up ur hours) but why would I need to make up my hour and spend the summer taking credit recovery classes if I'm not gonna be there next year I'm planning to take different alternatives to get my diploma or ged. My fingers hurt now so I just wanted to post this.

Can you at least use the enter key a few times so that you don't have a wall of text? It's hard for me to read through that shit.

They make you do community service in high school? Wow, that place really is like prision!

"There's no 'I' in 'Team'." Yeah, but there is a "me" in "Team" spelled backwards!

Sigh, speaking of cutting school. Finally got caught for cutting school. Sigh.

To be an anarchist, is to suffer greatly. To be a black woman is to suffer secretly. To be the earth, is to suffer silently.

I wish no harm on anyone, but those whose harmful ways will not stop without the same harm.

It's time we kill this cancerous system, before it kills us and everything left of gaia. Rise from our immaturity and take back our autonomy!

RE: nervous about trying to leave school tomorrow

We had a unofficial school holiday today, known to folks from Niagara as "Beach Day". Essentially, you skip school for a day and go to the beach with all of your precious friends. If not, than it's a day to just spend depending on your decisions.

My parents forced me to go to school, but my inhibitions about the turnup of students was sound. Out of nearly 900 students attending the school, only 53 showed up to class today. They gave us arts and crafts to do, but I was the only person in my first period, and third in my second. After second period, the principal came and told us that we could all leave. After that, I wasted my time surfing through SAS support forums and playing Deus Ex. What an interesting life story to tell the non-existent kids in twenty years.

If you're reading this, I killed myself.

That's because you didn't do it right.

RE: nervous about trying to leave school tomorrow

Community chores are, in my opinion, school's brilliant method to ensure you will hate giving back to the community. Much like they corrupt self learning through forced homework and social interactions through being forced to be with same-aged people in a prison like environment.

I hope you'll continue ignoring their shit and get out of there, at least you have a supporting mother. Good luck!
