I love this school, and i really don't see the reason to leave. You just need to make friends, and have great teachers, like I do. Plus, I was doing bad in school. Until I got up into the Middle School , and now I am helping others out just like my teachers pushed me to do more. Thus saying that, it ...  Read more

This school is a joke! The High School has Homeroom as a credited class! Ridiculous! It's the only reason my son passed. We wanted him failed because we have tried everything to get him to take school seriously and he just won't. Why should he when he can keep failing and then pass by the skin of ...  Read more

Many cliques -- new students won't feel welcome unless your parents and grandparents went here or your family donates a lot of money don't plan to send your child here.

Great student body. Tax base does not permit some of the extras, but a great place for our kids to grow up. Teachers community minded. Music program excellent. Small enough so all students can feel part of school.

Bangor School District isn't the ideal school but, it does hold quite a deal of memories. Some good, some bad. The high school isn't that wonderful though. Yes, it's new and exciting but, who really wants to go to school with a bunch of drug addicts, pregnant teenagers, and overall irresponsible behavior? ...  Read more

By far, not terrific, but on the whole they're trying really hard.

The school system itself is ineffiecient, partially due to the ...  Read more
