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.

I really want this year to end!

I'm in tenth grade in high school and I attend a vo-tech school for the morning session. I don't really like it there. You're probably wondering why I signed up for the class in the first place, right? The reason is because I thought it would be nice to try something new. I can't lie; I joined also because I wanted friends. Clearly, that wasn't the correct way to go about making, or in my case, finding friends. I figured I could find someone to become friends with within the twelve sending schools. I didn't sign up for vo-tech next year, though. I hate the class I'm in now because it doesn't interest me and I'm not even with my friend anymore. This girl isn't even in my home school; I met her in vo-tech. I can't wait to leave this dumb vo-tech school in June. I signed up for classes at my home school that actually interest me. I haven't seen my friend in about two weeks which is kind of depressing. She knows I hate vo-tech. In my home school, I have one friend who seems pretty nice. I just wanted to rant a bit. I'm planning on making next school year great!

Hello newblood.

Is it possible to get out of the vo-tech school any earlier? There's no point in staying there if you don't like it.

I see. I often hoped that I was able to make friends at school, but I feel the extroverted-favored environment of school, not to mention the awful clique system, pretty much killed that. I'm improving my social skills a bit and I may very well be leaving school soon.

I had the same exact feelings when I first got on here, trying to make my school experience enjoyable or something like that.

In my experience, my social skills were still quite off when I got into school, not to mention I really began not to stand the work, the deadlines, the grades, the toxic stress, etc. It's really hard to make school "enjoyable" when you don't fit the school mold.
