The Standard: Time Flies


By Mike Fahy ‘22

Time really does fly when you’re having fun. In the blink of an eye, I will be graduating alongside my fellow classmates. My four years at Brother Rice have been nothing short of amazing. Through all the ups and downs, I would not change one thing about these past years.

As soon as I walked through the doors on my first day of high school, I knew I had found my second home. The friendships I have created and the memories I have made will never be forgotten. As I look back, I realize how fortunate I was to […]

The Standard: The Return to 45 Minute Schedule


By Mike Fahy ‘22

School is back in action for the second semester here at Brother Rice, and with the second semester comes the return of the dreaded 45 minute schedule.
