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.

Think about getting the press involved. Then the school would be in trouble. Smile

Yeah. The press just loves to report about people in schools doing stupid things. Wink

Facial hair is the greatest thing ever when you're bored in class.

Fucking horrible art class that involves nothing but incorrect theory? Start stroking your facial hair.

Agreed. And, hey, if your lucky, the health department might come and evaluate your school, which would mean a day or 2 off. Biggrin

The administration are the most illogical people ever. I hope every school staff person falls off a cliff. We need less of this "kids are horribly immature. Trying to not catch a disease, please, they dont need to stay healthy."

Art class that gets it wrong? I'd rage to the point of walking out of the class.

Re: They tried to make me shave with a used dull razor.

...HAHA OH WOW.

Yep, that's about when I'd get up, and then calmly walk out the door. Or at the very least vow to not listen to a word he/she says.

Unfortunately, pretty much everyone hates gays nowadays, and it's sad when it's noteworthy that one isn't discriminated against.

Me either. >_>

I wonder if my school has a facial hair rule, i'll find out but I always get annoyed at the little longer than a stubble stage.

I used to be "The circus" as I forgot my login, but then hey-ho I remembered it.
