Brother Rice is a place unlike any other high school in the state. The students, faculty, and alumni embody the values of respect, integrity, character, and excellence. It’s an honor to go to such a high caliber high school that has helped me to grow in the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects of life. During my three and a half years here I have learned countless academic lessons, but even more life lessons. As students at Brother Rice High School, we are challenged every day inside and outside of the classroom. We are expected to meet high academic standards, but are given the resources and support needed to do so. In addition to strong academics, there is also a call to service that allows students to become more involved in our communities, and grow in our faith and spirituality.
In addition to being class president, I played football and was involved in several Marian Rice Players (MRP) theatrical productions. Brother Rice High School makes it very easy to get involved, and helps students to create the important balance between academics and extra curricular organizations. There is something for everyone to do at Brother Rice. If there is a specific club or organization that you are interested in, but Brother Rice doesn’t offer, then all you have to do is get a group of interested students and a moderator, and there is a good chance that the school will help you to create the club. At Brother Rice we believe that to get a proper education, and have the best high school experience, students to be involved in activities outside the classroom.
In all, I wouldn’t trade my high school experience for anything, and wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. The brotherhood we have is unlike any other and is a bond that all Brother Rice students and alumni share. As I go on to continue my education at the United States Military Academy at West Point, I know that I have not only been given the tools to succeed, but also a support community that I will be able to lean on anytime I need help. I am very proud to be a Brother Rice warrior, and I know that my brothers feel the same way. Spending four years as a warrior has been an experience like no other and I want to say to all those considering Brother Rice that becoming a warrior will be one of the best decisions you will ever make.
