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.

This doesn't make me stupid!.

I moved school districts and I'm quite satisfied with the schedule. At first. Definately not now. As soon as I looked at my classes, I could not believe what I was seeing. I was finally in a regular English class. I'm in 9th grade and I knew I should have always been there. Unfortunately, I got put back in a Language class, which is an adapted cirriculum English class. I knew right then and there that it was too good to be true. This Language class; I know I need it. However, I would not be where I am today without it. I have a lot of fun in that class. And I heard in my 10th grade year, I'll be in a regular English class again.

He was in an actual English class, got transferred to a retardo English class, and he's gonna be back in said original English class next year.

Cool story, bro. Tell it again.

That's what I was thinking, but upon further reading, I got lost in my own comprehension cycle. Plus the last part seems to throw me off...

Yeah, didn't make sense to me at first either, thanks Kundalini!
