There is very little diversity at Bangor. Many people are closed-minded, meaning that anyone who is different is outcasted for being who they are. The teachers are nice as long as you’re respectful and pay attention (which is how all students should treat their superiors).

I liked how there are a variety of different clubs, organizations, and sports within the school district. There is always something to do and joining clubs are easy and fun. I played Varsity soccer all four years of high school and I made friendships that will last a life time. The one thing I would improve would be having a mini-thon and coming up with new ways to raise money for charity.
Adverage school. Awful administration all with agendas other than the education of the students. Adverage teachers.. Some care.. some do not at all. Awful disciminitation and racism runs throughout the halls. Would not recomend moving to Bangor Area for the school at all. Some positives are the music program and the support of the community with events.
