Bangor Reviews

I live in the community of Bangor but because the school district here isn't very progressive, when I was in the 2nd grade my parents transfered me to a school district close to us, South Haven Schools. I continue to attend at South Haven and will graduate from South Haven also. Many members of the community are very poor and many do not work. I will not return to live here after college graduation. My parents live here but both work in other cities nearby.
Police are visible and quick to respond when called. Larceny is high, last year my brother's bike was stolen out of our garage.
Like I've said before, I enjoy the fact that it's a quiet and friendly area, but I'm a young guy that still wants to get up and do things. This area is not that type of area that I enjoy. Maybe when I get older and aren't able to do the things I do today.
