Bangor has not been without it's share of challenges in recent years. Slowly declining enrollment along with limited funding makes it hard to compete with other neighboring, larger schools. However, the district is taking great steps to improve that with the formation of a Destination District Organization designed to face these challenges and formulate solutions. This goes outside the School itself and involves the entire community it serves. It is a very good district and a quiet community. I went to school here myself along with my siblings, have had 2 of my own children graduate and have one in the school now. It has very good educational, industrial, cultural, and sporting programs. It is a save school with small class sizes which allow for more individualized education. I would recommend this school to anyone considering a move to the Coulee Region of western Wisconsin.

Bangor School District is pathetic. They do absolutely nothing with the bullying. As a concerned parent i see nothing is being done. I have brought this up to the principal and to teachers. The principal could careless unless its dealing with sports. The kids in this community are very racist and uneducated about other ethnicities here. It is a big problem and it needs to be fixed. I do not appreciate this school nor would consider it. It has not changed one bit since i went to school there.

The Bangor school district needs to learn more about it's students and the parents. I'm A former student to Bangor,I thought that it has great sporting events and all that ,but they don't respect the students very well. Most other students are respectfull to one and an other, unfortanitly bullys get off un punished way to often and the school dosent really help with a students problims in the classroom.

Excellent school with many fine arts programs for a well rounded education. Supportive families in this district make for a great student body. Administration is fair and all about communication. Students succeed in life from this district!

I think that the Bangor School needs to change its priorities and not focus on sports as much! Some teachers need to really change their ways and make it a better learning environment! To be a good teacher you need to be some what organized. Notes should be in a outline so students can go back and use them for tests. I believe that there is a lot of room for improvement. Over all the school is ok. However improvements should not be avoided!!

I have three children currently attending, for the most part the teachers as a whole are very competent, currently they employ some very young teachers that do not have the experience to handle young adults. The administration recently established a program using federal grant money that essentially gives students four hours of after school detention for three late assignments in the same class. Their justification is that this program will help to reduce failing grades. Understand that the policy previous to this program was to give students half of the grade that they earned on a late assignments, resulting in a 50% MAXIMUM grade. The new program entitles students to a MINIMUM passing grade (~65%), thus ensuring that the program meets its goals.

I think the school is ok. A push for excellence would be nice, rather than coasting kids through the system. I do feel its best quality is that it is small and personable. Friendly. However, the music department is lacking something. I'd like to see the choir a bit more classical. I think the potential is awesome.

Bangor is a good school in that they have nice teachers. However your kids are going to school to learn and not just to be around nice teachers. They do not push kids hard enough to learn.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
