Plans to build a new high school in the middle of Bungendore have divided the regional NSW community, with some residents angry at the prospect of losing their pool, library, and the only park in town.

Due to open in 2023, the high school is the product of an election commitment from the New South Wales Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro, John Barilaro.

There is currently no high school in Bungendore, and the proposed school will have capacity for about 400 students.
