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.

Hi..?

New here.
I'm from Britain and I'm pretty much halfway through Year 11.

I hate school. The teachers are fascist and they always blame people like me for everything.

Hi..?

Well welcome to school-survival.net. i noticed that no one was answering you or welcoming you so i guess i will. im gonna straight up warn you though, there's a whole lot of language and some of the remarks or answers from some people may seem like they are threatening you or bashing you. but they are not. i learned already and i have only been here a few days...

Good luck to you. i hope you find everything you need.

Yeah. There's hardly any of them at the school I go to.

I just play games on my laptop when I get home.
I frequently go on The Godfather Five Families and occasionally Territory War Online 3.

Ok. I'm not from the overly-obsessed part of the fandom.

Hi..?

Bronies invaded NationStates and it hasn't been the same since. I'm prejudiced.

Hi..?

^ You aren't on the right part of NationStates, then. (Also, steer clear of their forums.)

What's your favorite movie?

Who's your favorite actor?

Do you play a lot of criquet or croquet?

"free speech under the constitution only guarantees the government won't stop him saying it and does not guarantee his right to say things and have no consequences at all as a result. also i completely doubt that he is motivated solely by "i'm saying it because i can" and is probably motivated by a more shitheady motive like "i think it's funny to annoy people and Rustle Le Jimmies™ and is just hiding behind the first amendment to try to deflect any consequences or make you realize that being allowed to annoy people is a superior moral right. you can still disdain someone for doing things for dumbarse wankery purposes and you have evne more right to ban and insult them for it" ~Trar's friend about Potato.

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

I’d love to have a battle of wits with you… but I hate to fight the unarmed.

Hi..?

Aye! Someone who speaks me language. I don't know what a freshman is, or what a sophomore be or what a junior be or what a senior is. I do know what Yr 11 means. Could you give me some examples o' 'everythin''? It's not that I don't believe you, it's just that t' revolution will never get anywhere with just general comments.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.
One thing (among many others) school couldn't teach you.
