Brother Rice High School is a Roman Catholic all-boys non-residential college prep school with approximately 590 students located in Bloomfield Township, Michigan, United States in Metro Detroit. The school shares a campus with the all-girls Marian High School, Saint Regis Parish and the K-8 Saint Regis School.
The school was the site of a labor battle in 2003 and 2004 when a group of teachers attempted to unionize. However, a state court ruled that state labor and union boards have no jurisdiction over private religious schools.
The Brother Rice Warriors are also known for their tradition of excellence in athletics having won 72 state championships since their first title, the 1974 basketball championship. The lacrosse team has won the state title 24 times including the last 15 straight years and was the 2008 Inside Lacrosse National Champion.
The debate team has won 14 state championships and placed first in the world in the 2007 United Nations Foundation and International Debate Education Association (IDEA) Global Debates.
