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.

Ranting, plans, and thoughts

Hey guys. I know I don't post much but I've been on this forum for the past two years because it makes me feel so much more better and i just love it.

First I just want you to know that I'm in Canada and in a Catohlic high school (I don't even beleive in God so i don't know why I'm there) in grade 9 at the age of 15. I should be in grade 10 but I had to repeat grade 4 because I didn't talk to anyone which is the most stupid reason I've ever hear..

I hate school so much to the point where i feel like exploding and cussing all my teachers and than walking out. The only reason I don't do that is because I'm to nice. There is really no freedom at all serousily. All of my peers and friends are brainwashed so I have no support but my parents because they think just like me and you.
If any of you don't know i just want to tell you that the schools in Canada are just as bad as American schools.

I plan to dropout when I'm 18 so I don't do Anything in school but sleep and because of that my average is 0% on all my courses. Everyone thinks I'm dumb but really I do all my learning outside of school such as C++, Animation, magic tricks, music, acting, HTML, Electronics, Flying (simulated and real), and so many other things that would take me hous to say. All of that is what really matters in life and what you like to do and learn, not Useless crap they give you in school.

School rules are just plain stupid as well. Yesterday I got a detention which I'm not going to for refusing to take my jacket off! Thats just plain BS. I can't even talk to people because I have to sit down and shut up, so how the hell am i suppose to socolize and talk about something that matters not x23+g8-g9=12.

My dad said he would homeschool me when I finish grade 9 and it doesn't matter if I pass or fail but the only problem is that it's a hard proccess. When I finish grade 9 I have to go to a Public school and stay there for one semester until I can be homeschool. If that doesn't work out than I,m dropping out when I'm 18.

To conclude this I just want to give the schools a big screw you and that schools are supposed to be a place for learning but the truth is it's a place for dieing.

Thanks for reading if you read it all.

Give me your thoughts and if you have any advive I'l be glad to read it.

Good job, and welcome back!

Now to get the brainwashed fools at MY school to believe this. Could you believe I got a detention for visiting a health website?

I didn't talk to anyone except my parents until I was about 8 or 9 years old. Why the hell do they make you repeat a grade for that? That's retarded. When I had to do oral presentations and shit I'd record it at home and they'd play the damn tape in class, which was almost as bad as actually standing there. Stupid bastards.

Lol I wish they let us bring in recordings in my school but we had to talk out loud which is a complete pain, espacally for my friend because he was so shy that I had to go up with him and help him out.

Hmm I wonder how my life would of been if I didn't repeat it, because from that moment on I became Anti school... or if I didn't repeat it I would of became Anti in grade 5 or 6 so really no change there but a complete waste of time and my life.
