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.

Alternative for Repeating Year 11?

Hello

So I wouldn't elaborate too much on the personal details, but basically, is there any other alternatives rather than repeating the WHOLE year for Year 11?

I live in Western Australia and my semester one grades were good but things eventually get a bit bumpy during semester two and I was diagnosed depression and anxiety. They're telling me to repeat year 11 and I don't want to repeat the whole year because I don't want my peers to see me especially that they'd recongise me for being one of the top students once in my batch.

Please help me. Can I somehow re-do the semester two only? Please anything but repeating year 11 will do :(

Did you actually fail the year? Are they saying you have to repeat it, or are they suggesting it as a recommendation? It's not really clear from your post...

They told me I have to repeat because my second semester grades aren't good enough.
