Every school should have a debate team. Every student should have access to the best debate education opportunities for college, career, and civic success.
Debate is one of the most rigorous academic programs. We host debate tournaments on Saturdays and weekdays after school during the school year. During the summer we host debate tournaments on Fridays. Topics change each month. Students research and write to prepare in teams and compete against schools and students across the city.
