BANGOR – Forty senior class students were commended at last week’s School Committee meeting for earning the Superintendent’s Academic Excellence Award, the highest honor that can be obtained at Bangor High School. The award recognizes seniors who have taken a minimum of eight honors and/or Advanced Placement (AP) courses and maintained a minimum GPA of 4.0.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer a rigorous academic program that includes 20 AP courses to enable students to achieve their goals, and we’re very proud of the accomplishments of our award winners,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Betsy Webb.
The forty students receiving the award had taken a combined total of 523 AP and honors classes during their four years at Bangor High School. Recipients of the Superintendent’s Academic Excellence Award receive a certificate at Bangor High School’s academic awards evening, wear an honor stole at the graduation ceremony, receive special recognition in the graduation program, and have their names and photographs featured on plaques displayed at the high school and in the Superintendent’s Office.
