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.

Whats a smartboard? And no internet is normal at schools, at my school a very long time ago our school had a wifi connection thingy but somebody somehow stole it. But we can just take the wifi from the nearby mcdonnalds so its not too bad. Is there somewhere your school can take it from?

It's a board, much like a whiteboard, that you can project images onto. It's digital, so if you calibrate it you can move your hand across it as though you're moving the computer's mouse. It even comes with digital markers that create images directly onto the screen.

My school has lots of them - I keep forgetting that most public schools don't have the same budget.

Wow, I wish we had smartboards. We use those old fashioned projector on carts that the teaxher puts a transparent sheet with whatever they want written on it, and its shines on the whiteboard. Do you go to a private school?

we have lots of these too, i never knew that you could use your hand tho...2 years ago we had the ENO boards which were basically the beta version of the smart board (i was honestly surprised when we went from something that probably cost a lot to something that costs even more)

with the smart boards, if they have wifi setup with them then the students can connect to it remotely without using a docking station that the teachers have to use (the only reason being that we have a different laptop than the teachers...well, most of the students do atleast...and ours doesn't fit on the station)

My psych teacher liked to use the newer version of the projector, the one that you could hook up to your computer via that one blue cable that screws into the monitor and i personally like that option the best bc it's so simple and has the least chance of someone remotely hijacking it

RE: English Teacher

Smartboards sound nice. All of you telling me about your schools make me realise my school is kinda crappy. But non crappy school still sucks just as much. I understand your english teacher wanting them. And internet access sounds also like something that would be nive to have. But none of that should be expected.

I wish I could do something bad in my school,but there are literary tattlers and cameras at every hallway. EVERY HALLWAY! I should of stuck with the school I wanted to go to and not my parents. The only reason I was convinced to going to this school was because my best friend was there and he moved to Texas! :rant: I better find more chicks in my school, or something here is going to change! I can't take being watched, and barely being able to go anywhere till high school! My middle school has to be the smallest middle school ever! I felt trapped because in the first to days of middle school I was in a school that used to be a high school. HOW DID I DOWNGRADE TO THIS! I'm sick of all the "smart" people that think they're smart just because they get good grades (All A's are the only grades in this school). I WANT YOUR SCHOOL'S DRUGS JUST TO GET OVER THIS! I'M NEVER LETTING MY PARENTS MAKE A SCHOOL DECISION AGAIN!!!

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

When you get to high school, switch to public. I guess most public schools arent like mine though. If you switch to a school with gangs, your life would be much better if you are too big to be shoved in stuff.

I was being sarcastic, but you do sound as short as a ten year old. My parents are short, but they didn't make me that short. Lets all just shake hands at my 250th post.

That's old school - my school still has a few of these.

No, I go to a public school. It's just that my district is one of the richest in the state. I can actually find some mildly anti-school stuff to read in the school library, the campus is huge, and there's multiple Internet connections. (Unfortunately the district still uses a network developed in the early '90s.) Still, the place reeks of oppression.

My school doesn't even have a class so far except for one without some type of smartboard or projector. Maybe someone should write penis on them.

Write what, is this some kind of essay because if so then that's just mean. I'm gonna have to drink blood from this cute girl in class again because I tend to be obsessed with some people. I hope I'm not typing this because that would be awkward.

Most people get to class earlier than me because I still don't know how to open my locker. Rofl Well at least I get to ask cute nice girls to open it if I need to and people at my school are actually trustworthy.

Your school must have too much spare $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on their hands. Our school does have whiteboards, but a few rooms still have chalkboards.

^ Lol. My school has a smartboard in every classroom, at least one whiteboard in every classroom, and a few outdated rooms also have chalkboards in addition to the other stuff. You live in Detroit, which means crap school quality - in fact, the very idea that public schools could be worse off than mine was part of the inspiration for me to campaign against public schooling.

the money you pay in taxes hard at work. I am so startled that taxpayers arent starting an occupy the school campain (lke occupy wallstreet) because you must pay soooooooo much tax $$$$$$$. And PLEASE continue to campaign against public schooling. I am trying to do that, but for now i cant do much because everybody I try to talk to either: A: if they are whimpy just give me the finger or call me a word like asshead, B: if they are bigger then me shove me into something (garbage can, locker, closet, ect.), or C: punch me in the face, particularly people who are trying to show off to join a gang. But when I am an adult, I will hopefully be a little sucessful and be able to help with the campaign.
