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.

Elementary school was pointless....

Half the time we were doing stuff that was easy as hell (but at that time it felt difficult), and half the time I was using the computer playing various games, browsing random forums and reading Wikipedia.

How was elementary school for you?

RE: Elementary school was pointless....

Elementary school is literally a glorified daycare with shitty socialization and a focus of being obedient and a good little sheep.

Everything, and I mean everything, learned in elementary school and middle school can easily be learned at home or out in the world or on the internet. Only in highschool do you start to see subjects where having a much more knowledgeable teacher/guide is needed.

Elementary was just a sad little stageplay filled with too much drama and bitchy teachers. That was the beginning of the need for popularity and fame. *Dumb teacher's pets*. It was just so overrated. ELEMENTARY WAS BULLSHIT. Of course, it was way f****** easier than middle school.

Ugh, don't remind me of middle school. One school year during my graduation from elementary I feel like I'm the greatest kid in the world, and then the next school year I feel like a worthless piece of shit because of the people at middle school. Fuck middle school.

It was fun. My school was pretty small(private school) and it was kind of new, so there weren't any set rules or anything. We had lots of activities and the principal(well, 2. It was a couple, the wife usually handling in school business with students while the husband took care of out-of-school administrative things). I wonder if they're still at there old spot or if they moved into a larger building, it's been a while.

Elementary school was the only time I didn't complain about hating school -_-
