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.

What to do while skipping class.

I have a class first period on Mondays and Tuesdays that i have already failed. And by a wide margin. I'm talking by like 40 points. I currently have a 20. And i have too many absences this year without having to have an attendance appeal. So there is no point to going to that class. And i can't get a pass to go to the library unless i want to get on an IEP which isn't happening.

I'm probably just going to bum around town at this point. Reading, Listening to music, Playing iPod games, and wait for first period to be over.

What to do while skipping class.

That sucks, whenever I skip and I can't stay home, I just go to the library downtown and read.
But like you said, that's not really an option.
I also just go for a walk and listen to music.

I once did it by sitting at a cafe, sipping my tea while reading a good book.

RE: What to do while skipping class.

Go to the movies, chill at a friends house and play video games, get stoned.
When I skipped school sometimes me and my friend would go to this nature preserve by my school to get high and walk around in nature. It was pretty fun. Other times we would just take the bus downtown and dick around at the waterfront, go into shops, or just sit and look out on the bay.

sleep, explore the city (if you can), smoke weed. listen to music or read. talk to interesting strangers or go on reddit.

It's just chemicals.

What to do while skipping class.

Sometimes you might encounter someone who confronts you about school(if you look young enough). An old lady I saw on the street once threatened to call the police because she thought I was skipping school(Our school ended a earlier than other schools in our district because we started earlier). I just told her I go to a private school and we closed so she asked me the name of the school and threatened to keep an eye on me.

Old people can be weird...

What to do while skipping class.

Our school got a new system that calls, e-mails, texts, and does anything it can to contact your parents if you are absent, it even calls when your absences are excused, so I couldn't ditch, and if I did I would fail because the teachers are only allowed to give you your missed work if your absence is excused. The weirdest part about this set-up is that I live in a small town and my school is really crappy, I don't even understand why they try.

I thought that's how most schools did it?(my school does phone call and email, but usually they need more evidence before marking you as "skipping". Usually they just put down unexcused absent)

Jump up on top of a parade float and have the whole crowd bust out into spontaneous song and dance while singing Twist and Shout.

What to do while skipping class.

You should just hang out in the mornings and take your time. If you seriously refuse to go in for the class, why rush? However, if your parents care if you miss the class then you should go in for it. My high school calls my 'rentals on days that I miss or even if a period was missed.

I'm sorry but what language are you speaking? Because it sounds like bullshit.

What to do while skipping class.

Unfortunately, our school ID's have period numbers on them, so students can't skip and go to the lunch room or the library and use a computer because they require you to scan it through a card scanner (sucks..doesn't it...). So the only times I skip is either my first or last period.
