When Challenge Day comes to Rancocas Valley High in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, the students address the school's rumor mill and confront each other.
What do you mean
When I watch this shows I cry because I wish I had this in my high school I wood have probably made it through high school instead of being home schooled. This being back so mucc memory in my life I have to cry!!! You all need to keep your head up and juss kno there are people out there juss like you! : ) One is writing this right now....
Challege Day need to come to Atoka, Oklahoma! We need a change...
The "Emo" guy is cute (:
I go to this school and it is nothing like this like @ all
It takes alot of courage to speak up, I say, You guys totally rock. It actually helped me in looking at myself...
I am so impressed with what I saw, I loved the honesty, the emotion, that these kids were able to express. It is too bad I did not have what these kids have had, while I was in school and yet to see this, brings so much joy to my heart, I look at it, as at least these kids are having the opportunity to express their emotion, rather than bottle it all up. I am so grateful, for the adults who started the challenge day, I would love to be apart of it. Their are so many hurting teenagers, and the fact that they were offered the opportunity open up, is a huge gift. The hurting comments, the hiding behind certain identities has been an epidemic for many many years. Bravo. to whom ever started this, I am so moved at the results and most of all, these kids will be affected in the most positive way for their future, What a way to start all over again, to gain new perspective on each other and most importantly on them selves. Good for you, whom ever started Challenge day, I am moved, and inspired by watching these kids change. It is a wonderful thing. I am 43 years old, and I am so moved by what I saw. Their are so many adults carrying what these kids were able to release. That is true healing. May you all be blessed in continuing what you are doing. I totally support you. Excellent!!
If the people at my school really knew me, they'd see I try to hide behind my makeup and hair, and when they call me emo, or tell me to slit my wrists, I contemplate *******.
I fell so bad for Austin amd what he went throw
I wanna steal Austin's ******* Silence shirt o.O
Ahh I love sela and vinny! they were at my school for challenge day. I Love them so much, they made everyone open their own eyes. This was all last month and suprisingly a lot of people are still sticking with this. The assembly we had made me feel better because it was just great to finally let it all out. thank goodness for challenge day.
this is like my favorite epasode now yay
wow Austin is awesome!
This is why I hated high school all the stupid pointless drama everyday. Wait till these kids reach college.
I wish i knew Austin id b his best friend :)
props to Austin.
i think IYRKM is the best show to hit MTV in YEARS.
But- i think they need to focus on more than just high school.
Junior High is a HUGE place of controversy. Yeah, in high school you find out where you fit in, and you realize that not everyones going to like you. but in JH, you start to see that you can use rumors to bring others down, and get yourself on top. And those lessons are then carried on to high school. See, when 8th graders move up, they then go from top dogs in jr.high, to itty bitty freshman. And all freshman really want to do is impress the upperclassmen. So they continue with the rumors they started in junior high, and then build and build on the reputation they've made for themselves.
If the show came to a junior high, like mine, then they and hopefully others, would see that junior high is JUST like high school. Only with younger kids with no guidance.
The things that happened to Austin :(. I just wanna give him the biggest hug. :D. I <3 this show.
OMG I FELL REALLY BAD FOR AUSTIN HEARING WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM IT REALLY SAD
While I respect the program and the kids for what they are doing, I feel that the show is situated in stereotypical "White Suburbia" and not inner city communities and schools. I know because I am from one of these urban areas and we have problems at my high school that are far worse than most of these kids problems
what that principal says about people thinking its like leave it to beaver is really true sometimes. I was always thankful for teachers who saw that life wasn't carefree for most of my high school.
