    "This school is an absolute joke. Administration consequences are too severe for little "crimes" as they put it. You don't wear your name tag? Suspended. Voice your opinion? Detention. The education is awful, the students all don't care, its like they're prepping the students for jail, not college! The student's scores on the state tests are a joke, what does that say?! POOR TEACHING!! Do yourself a favor and use cyber schooling or home schooling. This school is terrible. Four kids I had go through that school, all did well, and we moved to a school district ranked much higher, and the kids didn't know the material!! Bangor High School is academically inferior when it comes to a NORMAL education. Awful place. Disgusting, really."

    "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 is really a great School District in general."

    "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 his teeth at the end of the year. We had a meeting with the vice principal and were told that they get lots of kids transfered in from other districts because it was easier at this school! That's not what schools should be! It should be challenging and about the kids' needs, if they cared more about the kids education and less about the money they'd be more successful. If you're thinking about this school, do yourself a favor and cyber school instead. We're doing it now and what a difference. Great courses, teacher involvement, greater expectations."

    "I had a child that graduated in 2008 and another that will in 2015.I have been very pleased quality education they have received thus far.The teachers have been responsive to concerns.When my eldest child was injured and required transport to an area ER for eval the then Vice Principal, Dr Defilice, went with him in the ambulance so he wouldn't be alone. The choir director is fantastic, encouraging each child to their highest level of achievement. I am not originally from here so I can say honestly I have never felt an outsider because of that. My children love Bangor school district and so do I!!!"

    "Teachers think that they the right to bullying children and parents to get their way, ways to get grants from the state."
