What Parents Are Saying

“We lived out of district but my son chose Bangor High School for the strong academics and extra-curricular opportunities. We wanted the rest of our children the have the same experience, so we decided to move to Bangor. When my youngest entered 4th grade at Mary Snow School, we realized she was really far behind in math. The small district we came from just didn’t have the resources to help her. Everyone at Mary Snow has done a great job of getting her caught up. At Bangor she can thrive where she’s stronger and can get extra help where she needs it without being held back. We’ve found that in the Bangor schools, if you’re ready to fly, you can fly, but if you’re struggling there are great resources for you.”

What Alumni Are Saying

“Going to Bangor High School really helped prepare me for college. I’m grateful for the support of the teachers and administrators and the opportunity to take a lot of advanced classes. During my senior year I took 6 Advanced Placement classes and really learned organization and time management which helped with my freshman year at Williams College.”
