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.

Hello

Hello I am Julia. Now for a rant. I hate school so much. I dread it every-morning before I go. Its maddening enough that I have to listen to these teachers all day but I am in stupid learning center class. The teacher thinks I cant do anything and thinks I'm retarded. For what being in learning center. The only reason I am in that stupid class is because I have trouble writing essays. I hate that class. She thinks I cant do anything. She checks our planners(yes planners) and do these stupid packets. Also Im tired of all those bitches in high schools. You know the girls who think they are all that. The ones who worry about how much makeup they put on and there clothes. I have a semester left until high school ends. I wish I had found this site earlier.

Re: Hello

Ah,...

You're almost out.

Welcome here, glad you, at least, spell correctly.

Essays are difficult, I'm upset you have to follow a specific format instead of presenting the information in a way that you like.

Anything that ever happened or will... one condition, it has to be amazing.

Re: Hello

Hey. I'm jealous that you are almost out of school.

Someone dear to me once said "We are the light." But, if that's true, then why am I still searching?

Re: Hello

Welcome to our humble forum. Please consider this place a sanctuary, free from the usual rigors of school, even past the day you graduate. All we ask of you is that you try to maintain some semblance of intelligence.

On that note, you should try writing some stuff you care about, on your own time. Perhaps then the whole experience of writing won't be ruined for you.

PLEASE, TELL US JUSTIN

Re: Hello

Welcome wondrous woman who without waiting wishes writing wisdom. Wouldn't wanting wisdom warrant wonders? Well wholesome worries withstand withering...(Random impulse.)

Oh Hello there, do feel free to complain about those...how did you put them. "Stupid high school bitches." ...wait did I add the stupid. I think I did.

Why, welcome aboard! Pirate You can leave yer sanity to tha'sharks, for it useless burden to her.

Seriously though, you're not stupid because of the amount of work you do or do not do. Don't listen to those assholes, they are the ones who are stupid for not understanding.

Thank you. Yes writing would not be as bad if we did not have to follow the teachers stupid format.

I'm going to do that. Thanks.
