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.

You can pretty much do whatever you want and no one gives a shit.

Wait, really? Do the security guards really just let everything happen?

My school is the opposite. I mean, it's not that bad, but you can't even listen to your iPod during lunch. Something I never understood.

No guards were at my school. Never really needed them.

I don't have guards at my school.

Wow. I usually listen to my iPod during most of my classes. The teachers just don't seem to care about anything. Not that I'm complaining.

Surprised that there are no guards at your school. There are at mine. The students can be quite out of control.

To be honest though, 50% of the time if a teacher sees you listening to your iPod they don't give a shit. In fact, one teacher lets us use listen to our music in her class.

It's probably because there's less than 400 students.

About a year ago I moved from a school of over 1000 students. No guards there. Never had guards at any school in my life. Maybe it's an American thing...

It's funny hearing about how a high school near my area was once the best among the East Coast(the 60s-70s I think). Now they're literal prisons and a literal stains on the city(not that the city is as great as it once was) Paterson NJ is now a half-abandoned semi-ghetto shithole. Can you believe it used to be a prosperous industrial city packed with white folk, who have run for the hills. Literally, a mountain once part of Paterson, as it's categorized, was made a separate city known as West Paterson. Course the white folk couldn't deal with the word Paterson, so they even renamed the city recently to Woodland Parks. That pretty much shows how bad the city of Paterson has become...

There will probably be more guards in US schools, thanks to all those students killing people.

Actually, there is one thing you can't do. You can't draw pictures in a notebook and then lose it, or else whoever finds it will report you to guidance, and then guidance will call your mom and make her pick it up. After going through it and deeming it "concerning", or course.

That just happened to me.

I WISH I went to a school like that. Then I'd bring my 3DS with me and level-grind on my Pokémon.

"No matter what I do, it'll probably forever remain a pipe dream that will never come true,
but the fire burning in my heart cannot be doused by anyone.
Even if the black rain falling from the sky drenches me completely and doesn't stop,
I will never allow the fire in my heart to be extinguished. That, is my 'pride'."

i'd like to see the pictures, ahahaha.

on topic, no one at my school gives any shits as long as you show up.

on a regular day at least two kids in each of my classes are completely stoned out of their minds, or drunk, or a combination. the one thing that really pisses the guidance counselor off it seems is disappearing into the woods or using the vending machines during class?
