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.

Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.

I've got 7 AM to 12 PM.
I have to get up earlier than I do in the school year.
That's just...gah.
At least it's only three weeks, I have a month and a half of summer left after that....
God, I just want finals to be over. My dad's gonna rail at me, I'm getting Cs instead of my usual A's,...
At least Health will be easy.

Some places it is optional, but I think in most areas if you fail a certain class you have to go to summer school.

To OP:
I'm not going. That's the only reason I try not to fail so I can have my whole summer to myself, but a lot of my friends had teachers that hated them (I mean hate) and failed them.

I'm so glad I'm in an alternative school so I don't have to deal with all the headstrong teachers in my school.

Re: Summer School

So are you telling me I should try to maintain my D in math and not let it fall to a F?

(It shifts from D to F week to week. Hopefully it will be on a D at the end of the school year.)

And I'm failing english and literature... But I guess they would have told me if I have summer school by now we only have 2 1/2 weeks left.

Had to move on. Account is dead.

Re: Summer School

Glad the summer school is out due to the lack of money, but the negative thing is that there is 2 months of summer while in the past there was 3 months of summer.

Re: Summer School

I'm most definitely getting Biology (Living Environment, whatever the hell this retarded subject is called) summer school. There is only one good science teacher in this school and he only teaches freshman and juniors. Everyone else blows and seriously don't deserve their income.

Schools totally fail at teaching foreign languages.
I wish they just fucked off already.

Aparentemente, Carla Franklin es una puta. Esta declaración puede ser considerada auténtica dependiendo de la definición de "puta", un insulto común que en este caso puede significar "una persona que se vuelve loca demandando a gente por nada, y si no hiciera eso quizá nadie la llamaría puta en primer lugar".

Re: Summer School

I'm not looking forward to summer school because for some reason were not having it at our neighborhood schools and everybody from one school is being put in one fucking school. So I'm gonna have to see faces I've been hating and dreading all damn year all together, plus I shaved my head and every asshole is going to go haywire when they see it, so, wtf.

Re: Summer School

Except that "hables" (or is it "hablas?") is a second person singular verb, and as far removed from an adjective as I am from a happy, meaningful life.

I shaved my head because I fucking felt like it, and Im tired of having so much damn hair.

BUt, what the hell, at first I was nervous about it now I'm like, FUCK ALL.

Re: Summer School

It's supposed to be no tú hablas, or (since the verb is conjugated) the pronoun can be dropped: no hablas.

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.


If a teacher you don't know tries to bust you for something, just tell them "Jsem výměnný student, nemluvím anglicky. Tak jdi do prdele ty posranej hajzle, tvoje matka je kurva!", then send me money.
