I'm a high school fur... unfortunately the only high school fur in my school other than me (that I know of...) would be my ex girlfriend.
The odds of there being three in about 2000 is pretty slim... As for my lifestyle I don't really act furry so no one really knows, but my friends think of it as just a generic anime cat ear and tail fetish (not as bad as it sounds... were already "the weird kinkies" for other reasons).  Ive never really cared enough either way...

Although I am the mascot!

You lucky dog (it's an expression)! You get to be a school mascot. Ours is, wait for it, Sir Winsalot. A human knight. Now that's no fun.
Hey, you! Yes, you, especially you, Stephen, listen here.

*raises paw* I'm a junior in my highschool. Unfotunately, I am what appears to be the ONLY one in my school. (or, at least, the only one that is aware of his own furriness) The closest thing to another fur in my school is my best friend, and that's mainly because of his understanding and open-minded personality (that, and he's posted on here for a few months). *sigh* It gets so lonely sometimes...  :(

Joined the forum in my Sophomore year I think... Wore a tail to school a few times and a collar once. Not many people cared, and if they did I didn't care that they did. :P :)

 I was interested in anthro art for a long time; I even was developing a character who would later become Traitos. However, when I finally learned about furries, I was in my sophmore year, I had no idea what it was seeing as I only heard the name. When I looked it up (due to all the sites that provide info that puts furries down) I felt embarrased about liking anthro art. So I was silent about it until I decided to look up more info and discovered wikifur. Now I accept it but my passive nature keeps me quiet about the whole thing.

I still sometimes feel like my info on the matter is just not quite right.

I'm actualy still going through the high school furry phase, but oh, well, story time.

I turned my best friend furry without trying. She originally was just into the anime fandom, thus only caring about furries to the point of catgirls (though she never ever said anything bad about them). Then when I dropped out of the fandom for a year, she joined it. What luck!

When I go back to America, I'll be going to a much larger school then what I was before so I'm hoping I'll be able to find some furs or more people to accidentally convert.
My English isn't the best anymore. Sorry for any mistakes.

Really? we had plenty of furries, but not one of us wore a tail/ears. :D

(We almost even started a club, but the person who was going to found it got caught up in school work, and never got around to applying for the creation of it.)

So i bring up FCN today after eighth period (i call it recovery period :D) and get questioned, after telling them it's a furry convention, my GENIUS friend starts going on about how it's a fetish where all the people like to have gay sex with cartoon animals in mascot suits. >:(
....."FacePalm"

Luckily I caught the person later and negated all that information replacing it with cold hard facts... whew!

Even worse yet, my GENIUS friend isn't willing to learn about the fandom and just says its weird. Oh how stubborn souls must be.  >:(

Anyway, I haven't been mortally injured yet so i can't say things are going badly :D

I'm currently a sophmore and I don't think I'm the only furry at my school but I can't tell. For example some of the kids ( including a couple of my friends ) wear tails but I can't tell if it's because they are trying be like the ravers or shuflers or actual furrys.

Why not ask ;)?

Though for a while now, tails and ears have been a hipster thing.

I went to 2 high schools and looking back I think I was the only furry in both of them.  I didn't find out about furries until 1st yr of college (im in my 3rd yr of college). In my 2nd hs i wore a collar and all of my friends supported it, they knew I was a cat I just wasn't dubbed a furry until college.  Sometimes I wish I still had a collar..i have a tail

I go to this small school of 300 students that's rather high-tech with everyone being rather web-savvy or creative. So one would expect several furries out of the bunch right? Nope. Aside from me there's only one other fur in school, and we tend to hang out around campus. Aside from one 'incident' last year (a -chan obsessed student discovered my furriness and called me a common furry insult out loud), I've never had any problem even when I frequently draw furs in class.

Still that's pretty good. You at least have another fur at your school.

I'm still in high school, and while I'm not openly furry there is a girl a few grades below me who talks constantly about the fandom and even wears ears & a tail to school. But she's the only other furry I know besides myself and my closest friend.

Most of my friends really don't care about my being a furry one way or the other. They find the naked art sorta weird (it's Barbie-like nudity but still) but other than that, they just don't care. I don't wear ears, a collar, or a tail, though, because my school has a strict uniform policy. Maybe in college but until then, I'm tailless o3o

I go to a fairly large school (1000+ students) and there's only two other furries, but I'm still happy I'm not the only one :D One of them is quite new to the fandom, mostly because after she asked me several questions about the fandom she decided to be a shrimp-furry :)
I don't really wear a tail or collar yet, but I will probably start next year if I have the guts xD

It's been awhile (try a few years) since i was in school- but I used to be the little kid in all black sitting in the corner, doodling anthros. Everyone in my school pretty much ignored me so i was kind of the lone wolf in that respect :P BUT- i fursuited duting school spirit week, and ALWAYS wore my tail and collar ^^. Now I've got a tattoo >.>;;;

I was already bullied for being fat/weird/gothy/emo/whatever they could pin to me, so if I had said I'm a furry, they would've killed me. (I live way up in the country, when I made a slideshow about Gay Pride, most of the boys said "gays are disgusting and should be euthanized like horses with limps.")

Well, I'm not quite in high school (next year, can't wait!) but middle school is close enough, right?

Anyways, I'm mostly home-schooled and live in a tiny town, so the chances of me finding another furry are low at best. And even when I used to wear ears to school, (oddly enough, that was BEFORE I knew anything about furry) pretty much all the attention I got for it was positive.
 In fact, the only "negative" attention I got was when someone finally told me that my ears were considered a "costume" and therefore not allowed. Which kind of makes sense, but I had been wearing them fairly frequently and publicly (Not hiding them from teachers or anything) so I was just surprised no one had noticed before. In fact, I don't think anyone even told me what the dress code was. Weird.

(Off topic, but IceDag, what is the "covered in BEES!" underneath your avatar a reference to? I'm guessing Eddie Izzard, but I'm not quite sure....)

Man, 3200 is a lot though.  :o

At my old school furries were of sin. :'(

I am the only one of my kind that I know of in my town.
