Speech and Debate

The Speech and Debate team is an after-school, extra-curricular activity designed to build the communication skills of all members.  This activity offers something for everyone.  If you like acting, arguing, reading, researching, writing, or just meeting people this team is for you.  Presentation competes in the Coast Forensic League, the most competitive district in the State, as well as the California Coast NFL League, the second most competitive district in the entire country.  Students in Speech and Debate also become members of the National Forensic League, one of the most prestigious academic organizations that high school students can be a part of.  Club members are eligible for local, state, and national competitions.  Even if you are not competitive by nature, the Speech and Debate team still has much to offer!
