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.

I'm possibly fucked.

As some of you may know, I've been going to an online school for a little over two months. I'm going back to regular school. I'm not being forced, I'm going back because I want to go back. If you're looking into going to a cyber school, STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM PA VIRTUAL! I can't stress this enough, the school is a hot mess. Nothing works (especially the teachers).

So, to get back to school, I have to do a shit ton of work here. The work is pretty easy, but I don't have enough time for it. I'm going back on Thursday. I spent at least 3 hours on a science test because the majority of the test was in a fucking extra bit of one lesson in the entire unit.

If I don't get the work done, my grades are going to be fucked to the point of me flunking the entire year. So yeah, there's that.

Would you recommend going to an online school at all?

I couldn't say. I've only been to this place and it's fucking awful. Ask PrinceDarkstar, he goes to an online school.

Ah, sucks. I had a tough time switching from homeschooling/online school to regular school too. It took me about 3 to 4 months to feel comfortable(ish) there and with the work. It was easy for me but I wasn't used to it.

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

Indeed, mine is education2020/Edgenuity. It doesn't have nearly as many bugs as Alistoriv's program apparently has...
I guess it depends on which program of online school it is.

And if you dislike public school, I say go for it...

"Write me a little report of [my video], so I know you watched it, or you get another warning. One of my other goals is to make this forum a bit of my own class...So, tell me, how you feel about the new rule of having you do homework? Or you get another warning. So, do you want to do this or not?...Please send a PM and tell me if you're willing or not. I will probably give you 24 hours to send the PM. No PM will indicate to me that, no, you don't want to do things in this new way. So, you will be saying goodbye."

Thanks, Prince Darkstar, I have been thinking about it for a while. And I'm sorry, Alistoriv, that your school didn't work out, but once you get caught up again I'm sure you'll feel better.
