    Well, I'm going to be going to a new school this fall, 10th grade. I visited the counselor today. I guess they have swim class. I didn't ask if it was mandatory though. It's only for half the schol yr, but still... i just really can't take the class.

    I cut. I really just can't take the class. Does anyone know if it's mandatory? i live in the us btw. Like, im just not sure how to get out of it. All i know, is that i HAVE TO. :cry:

    What's wrong with swim class? I love to swim and its really good exercise. But if you really don't like it, then talk to your counselor and see if there is a course that you can substitute for it.

    Each school can determine which classes are mandatory for you to take. Sometimes you can receive waivers from the class if the school feels you have a valid reason for not taking it. The only way to find out is to ask. It might not be as bad as you think it will be.

    Fake a sick note ...? Like some injury or condition that means you can't do it for the whole year. Or you could say you have a complete phobia of water.
    Hey but that sounds really stressful :hug:
