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.

Introduction and ....more

[/b]Hey, my name is Chance and i hate school more than anything in the entire world, in fact Im just gonna vent on a few things right here:

1. You are obviously better than 95% of the entire building if you play sports.

2. If you make anything higher than a B- than you are called a "no life teacher's pet" but if you make anything lower than a D you are called "that really stupid kid that nobody likes"

3. They should put a warning label on the doors of fatass teachers, whenever they talk to the kid next to you and theyre fat ass gets stuck right in your face....oh my god....

4. No Mr Teacher, no matter how hard you try, you can not make the Triangle Equality theorum or whatever the fuck it's called actually not be boring...

5. Refer back to Number 3, One day I got my phone taken up in class, so she takes it and opens up this cabinet and like 30 twinkies fall out, then she makes us all pick them up and put them back in the cabinet. So then she put my phone in her back pocket...like I want it so close to that ass...

6. No matter what you say, do, or try there is no or will there ever be a different way to work any problem except the way I tell you to.

1. I'm aware of this.
2. I'm aware of this, with some variation.
3. Wat
4. It's possible, but teachers are some of the least qualified people on the planet to make it seem interesting. We need more educators, not instructors.
5. Sounds like a problem with a particular teacher.
6. That's a quote, not an observation.

Anyway, watch out for trolls. There's still a few lurking here.

3: I know that feel bro, why can the hotter teachers never do that though, that's my question. They always choose the good elective classes (I.E. foods, baby stuff, etc?)

DoA: I thought you didn't give out free samples?

Me: Hi me! *waves*

6: Since you didn't quote that right, I'm gonna have to ask you if your school has quoted it right since it's on their walls, and if not then you should threaten to sue for plagiarism and then take a pic of the Principal(guy in charge)'s face and post if for us!

Thanks for the diploma… can I have my childhood back?

Welcome aboard the SS insanity. We hate school and like education. Welcome to paradise! Oh, and what is your opinion on Minecraftian physics being applied to real life?
