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.

Hey there!

I'm completely new to School Survival Forums, unlike those who have gone and came back after a while. After reading what other introductions people have on here, I'm completely clueless on how to start, this is going to sound like a boring, crappy introduction, but bear with me!

I generally like school, though I absolutely hate the amounts of work we're given. It makes us students dislike the learning process. (Apart from a few special individuals who seem to enjoy having mass amounts of homework everyday, that is).

I got here searching 'School forums' on google search. I'm trying to get more survey responses so I can finish my research on a project which is due soon, but it seems like no one likes doing surveys. I don't blame people who ignore the link I paste to various sites, but its frustrating to get this low amount of responses, barely enough to complete a survey analysis. I read nothing about survey links on the forum rules, so I'm going to paste my survey link here, thanks to all who help!:

I really like digital drawing. Visual Arts is one of my favourite subjects. Its demanding, but it sure is fun! If any of you want a doodle, I'll be happy to do it for you!

That's it for now, I hope no one died of boredom!Nutter
