Forensics HS & Junior High
High School Forensics is open to students in grades 9-12. Students develop public speaking, debate, and performance skills in a variety of categories that include literature interpretation, dramatic interpretations, persuasive and informative speaking, debate, and extemporaneous speaking. Students compete in three regular-season meets throughout the year and have the opportunity to qualify for competition at both the state and national levels.
Junior Forensics is a smaller version of the high school Speech and Debate League and is an after school activity open to students in grades 7 and 8. Students have the opportunity to recite a piece of prose, drama, or poetry, or create their own original informational or persuasive essay to perform. The season starts in August and ends in November.
