As a student at Bangor high school, I find the teachers and the vast academic opportunity very helpful in my path to collegiate readiness. My school offers programs such as stem and utc to better prepare students for the real world. The staff are supportive and I’ve had very few negative experiences concerning Bangor high school admin. On top of this, the high school offers many extra curricular ranging from the arts to athletics to political clubs. As a student going onto my fourth year of varsity field hockey, I can attest to the fact that my teammates are extremely supportive and my coach is talented in the sport herself and pushes us to be our very best. The reason I gave Bangor high school four stars is due to the lack of diversity and the lack of funding in the arts. While football receives new gear and uniforms all the time, the drama club is left using costumes and props from shows that were performed ten years prior. Overall, Bangor high school is a great school.

Bangor has some amazing programs available to the students from sports to academics to charity opportunities. It has a wide array of varsity sports anyone can tryout for but also a handful of intramural activities such as volleyball for those that want to play sports but not at the caliber of varsity. For academics there are many academies such as the STEM, business, humanities, and art that students passionate in those fields of study can enroll in. There are also many AP and dual enrollment opportunities. On top of this we have many other extracurriculars such as key club for volunteering, class council for making class decisions, and fun ones such as mountain bike and trail club or chess. There can be some issues amongst teachers and administration but for the most part there are amazing teachers supporting the students.
The most decent thing about this school was the education. Although the teachers weren't the greatest, and the learning environment wasn't the best either, we all still manage to learn what we need to. What I'd like to see change though, well that's a much longer story. The biggest thing is that I would like to feel safe and welcomed at this school. Every year I've been here, something happens. Bomb threats, suicide, kids bringing guns to school. It's awful. I hate to wake up every morning thinking that I might die today. Today might just be the day someone does something. It's a horrible awful thing to not feel safe in your school
