  1. School Spirit

    November 22, 2014 by David

    They thought it was a good idea to sneak into the school at night and change their grades until muffled laughter came down from the dark classrooms in the empty hallways. The laughter sounded way too young to be the school’s current students.

  2. The lollipop-man

    June 14, 2014 by Laco

    I stopped my car in front of the lollipop man helping a long queue of kids crossing the road. Just when I stepped on the gas pedal did I notice that the kids were being ushered into a restaurant called Young Meat.

  3. Fuck Them

    February 14, 2014 by Isabelle

    Don’t you find it ridiculous that they tell us to be unique, to be individuals, then they give us a standardized test that makes us all one faceless herd? Because I do.

  4. First day jitters

    August 21, 2013 by Kathy

    “Good luck on your first day of school honey!” my mom yelled from the kitchen. Today would have been five years since cancer took her away from me.

  6. For Whom the Bell Tolls

    October 22, 2011 by Mathew Ferguson

    The day he received his rejection letter from Harvard, he buried his face in a towel and wept. He wasn’t sad for himself, but for his parents.

  7. The Exchange Student

    June 10, 2011 by Mathew Ferguson

    Her friend had traveled a long way to visit but the school refused to allow her to bring any guests to class.

    He tagged along anyway, and she  introduced him as a foreign exchange student to all of her teachers, while he nodded awkwardly and pieced together broken English which was, in fact, his native tongue.

  8. Ever Been Tested?

    May 29, 2011 by Anele Biscarra

    The tests we have in life – school examinations or job performance evaluations – are seldom reliable and should not be considered bases for assessing your capabilities. If you pass or if you fail, it does not mean that you are superior or inferior to others; the real test is if you know how to deal with failure…and if you know how to handle success.

  9. Post-Grads

    March 18, 2010 by Eljay

    We graduated virgins, and made sure that title didn’t stick for long. How was I to know it would drive him to insanity?

  10. School

    October 23, 2009 by Mathew Ferguson

    When the school melted it was a blow to the entire community.
    Next time we’ll build it from chocolate rather than ice-cream.

  11. School

    August 16, 2009 by Mathew Ferguson

    Is school a sanding machine that smoothes us all off?
    Or is it a hacking machine that cuts off vital parts?

  12. Telepathic Agoraphobe

    August 14, 2009 by The Cloaked Stranger

    “He’s just shy,” Grandma insisted, and convinced Henry’s mother to enroll him in daycare despite his tantrums whenever they went to the mall or to playdates.

    Tell that to twenty screaming toddlers with simultaneous and spontaneous nosebleeds.
