I graduated from Brother Rice in 2009 and I couldn't speak more positively about the institution. Going into HS, I was forced to go there, and I am glad that I was. During my time, I did 4 years of band, track, soccer, NHS, Spanish Club and Croatian Club. To say the least, I was busy. But the quality of the teachers was great. There were many times where I was able to meet with teachers outside of class for help, speak with the administration about policies, and get extra work in with coaches and directors for extra practice. I would highly recommend BR to anyone, of any religion, race, or ethnic background.

Graduated in 1985. Had a great experience. My brother followed me and graduated in 1993. Prepared us both for the rigors of college and provided great lessons for us both. Am grateful to be a Crusader.

Sadly, Brother Rice is still living with the mentality of the "50's. Truthfully we all know that the lack of diversity is pronounced. It's the open secret or the elephant in the room that no one talks about. It will never to a "great" school as long as the emperor has on no clothes. And to think it calls itself a religious institution. The truth will make you free.

i am a former student from this school when it first open. i found it quite rewarding. i suppose it is what you apply yourself too. the math and science courses were awesome at that time. i know almost everything i learned there came in very handy. i was in the peace corp and the army in vietnam. things i learned at brother rice became very useful many,many times..............

This school was great. The teachers really helped me and the student body was more focused on grades and getting into a good college than other high schools in the area; including Marist and St. Rita. They also have new facilities including a science lab and turf football field which makes it more desirable to attend Rice.

Brother rice is a great school academicly and athleticly, if you don't mind too much money being put into uneccicary athletic facilities and equipment and all other activities being shorted.the religious aspect of it is kind of crammed down your throat until senior year when the theology encourage students to think for themselvS. The teachers are, just as anywhere else diverse in attitude and teaching meathod. There are many that I enjoy seeing outsde of school and would even go out of my way to talk to and then there are some that I avoid like the plague. I do agree with the afor-mentioned lack of individuality, the dress code strips you of any expression. The classes are very limited, people say because of the collage prep-ness but if you can't explore then no matter how intellectually ready you are for collage you will not know what you want to do.

I graduated from brother rice high school. This was not my choice of school, but my only other options were Morgan Park or St Rita. It is an all boys school, so if you go here you'll miss out on a lot of normal high school experiences. The mandatory religious classes are pretty ridiculous. Academics do not adequately prepare you for college. Student body is mean-spirited and aggressive. Athletic facilities are very poor.

I have gone to this school since freshman year, and am now a Senior. The only good thing about this school is the friends you make in it. There are teachers ranging from all sides of the spectrum, and the worst part is the fact that everyone is expected to conform. The only individuality the students are allowed to have is their choice of tie/belt. No ear piercings, natural hair color only (and only one length, too. The 80's called, they want their hair back.), solid colored collard shirts, solid color dress pants, and solid color shoes. I understand we go to school for an education, but guess what? I'm tired of looking just like the guy next to me, day after day for four years. As for the whole 'College Prep'-ness of the school, that's all dependent on the student. My kids will go to a public school, no doubt.

I am so grateful my son graduated from Brother Rice. He was attending a public school in the West while living with his Dad. He was not doing well, barely passing and seemed lost. He came to live with me in Chicago and went to Bro Rice for his junior and senior year. Made the honor roll first semester! He made wonderful friends that he still has today. He has a u masters in education and is teaching on the West Coast. I will always be gratefulfor Brother Rice.

Brother Rice High School has proven to be a good Christian learning and academic experience to our son who is a Senior. Our Freshman son is finding the same to be true. There is a great sense of tradition at Brother Rice. The school does a fine job of turning boys into men, and through the Divine Providence of Our Lord. There motto is to Act manfully in Christ Jesus. They are dedicated to their Rice Pride. They have led into the new millenium in a great way. I know they will just keep getting stronger, bigger and more faith filled as the years go on.
