Unified Basketball Season Overview

Emma O'Leary | May 16 2017 | in Sports

The Unified basketball team, coached by Dallas Strankman, wrapped up its season during their second year at Fairview. The team lost  two games they played this season, including the game against rival school Boulder High. The team hosted the Boulder-Fairview game this year on Thursday, April 20th, and they won by a narrow margin of 2 points, finishing with a total of 33 points. l...

Opinion: Community College

Emma O'Leary | May 16 2017 | in OP-ED

Fairview is a competitive school. Many students take all advanced classes and pack their schedules with extracurriculars, volunteer opportunities, and leadership positions in order to have their college applications stand out. Every year, a handful of seniors are accepted into some of the nation’s top schools. In this competitive environment, attending community college might not even cross a senior’s radar. However, community colleges are very beneficial for a variety of students. Recently, a friend of mine announced her plan to attend Front Range C...

"The Fate of the Furious" Review

Ryan Swerdlin and Arshan Aidun | May 10 2017 | in Arts & Culture

As everyone knows, the new “The Fate of the Furious” movie is in theatres and follows the adventures of our favorite crime fighting, street racing crew. This movie was spectacular and has everything that’s great about the past few Fast and the Furious movies as well. The characters in the movie have always been known as Vin Diesel’s, also known as Toretto’s, Crew. This time around the ...

Netflix Originals

Emma O'Leary | May 9 2017 | in Arts & Culture

Did you just finish your latest Netflix obsession and are looking for something new? Are you a fan of science-fictiony shows? “Sense8,” “The OA,” and “Stranger Things” are three of my favorite TV shows, and all are Netflix Originals. Sadly, they all only have one season currently, and not many episodes in that season, but in this case quality is more important than quality. Sense8: If you ...

"Logan" Review

Ryan Swerdlin and Arshan Aidun | May 9 2017 | in Arts & Culture

The final installment of the classic Marvel series Wolverine ended in  spectacular fashion. “Logan” is not only the best Wolverine movie. It is one of the top superhero movies of all time, maybe even the best. The film transcends the superhero genre in that it does not confine itself to the  status quo of the genre. This allows it to differentiate itself from other movies in the genre as well as the previous mo...

"Power Rangers" Was Actually Good Somehow

Laura Brack | May 9 2017 | in Arts & Culture

I love “Power Rangers.” And I don’t just mean that in an “oh, wow, what a neat show I watched as a kid” sense; I mean it in an genuine sense. The good seasons are the perfect mix of camp, crazy martial arts antics, and characters that you can actually grow to care about; the bad ones...are completely skippable, because aside from a few occasional crossovers here and there, they don&rsq...

Parking and Weather

Arshan Aidun | Apr 12 2017 | in Student News

The past couple of weeks have been very snowy, icy, windy, and dusty. The result? Traffic on the way to school, and back, plus, the snow day and most of the cars parked outside covered halfway in dust. Our snowiest days were in the first week of January, and high winds higher than 21 miles per hour were reached from January ninth through January eleventh. “It was very inconvenient, and it was pretty dangerous.” junior  Noah Kendall said. Snow gets plowed on the streets around Fairview, but the neighborhoods be...

Laura Brack, Sara McCrea and Ben Gelderloos | Apr 4 2017 | in OP-ED

Rich. Privileged. White. Subaru-owner. Most of us have heard this stereotype that supposedly defines Fairview. Yet these words can not define 2,153 students who come from drastically different backgrounds and experiences. We derive much of our identities from our cultures, and much of our culture reflects who we are. Though we may have set out with this issue of the Royal Banner Newsmagazine to find out how our cultures define us, we instead found that on many levels, especially within high school, we have the power to craft a culture of our own. lt...
