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.

Fake Online Schools

Here's a listing of "fake online schools." Hope no one's been caught by one of these which all originate from this fella in Pakistan. You have to do your research before enrolling to ensure it is a good school and accredited by a real accreditation outfit.

RE: Fake Online Schools

Those are some of the most asinine fake/knock-off titles I've seen.

Fake Online Schools

The fake ones help you learn more than real ones.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

I really wish that the people in charge of schools would realise that the schools suck, they need a better idea. And what is a computer lab?

Fake Online Schools

A room full of outdated by a few year computers. I think our teacher there might also be our vice principal so that might explain it. One day when they still didn't get me uniforms because I came the third day of school(from the school I stayed for 2 days AND the school I actually preferred)she pulled me out of line like there weren't like 4 other people without uniforms. Why brain allow me to move to too easy and too secured advanced school!

RE: Fake Online Schools

Looks like two of the big SCAM online school rings just lost big in court:

Online high school - online GED fraud judgements

Of course, since they are both people in foreign countries running these we'll have to see if they just roll the scams to other url's. Biggest takeaway is that you can't take GED tests online only at official testing center.

What do you mean by outdated computers. Our school has a room of a few computers, I guess similar to your computer lab. Accept yeachers can reserve it for their class to use that period. They are alwaysbfighting over it. Our computers are the ones that are shaped like a cube shaped cardboard box. Where the screen is as thick as the front side is wide. Are yours like that?

Sounds like you've got a few old-school Macs. Definitely outdated.

Just outdated by word as far as I know and still use window 7 but windows 8 sucks anyway. I can just tell if school computers are outdated if our social studies books don't have Obama in them.

Ours at least have Bill Clinton in them but barely talk about 9/11. IF MY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HAD BETTER BOOKS THAN MY SCHOOL THEN THEY'RE JUST SPENDING TOO MUCH ON SECURITY!
