Forensics seeks to develop the ability of students to deal with the public in speech situations that require poise, self-confidence, and knowledge of composition and interpretation techniques. Membership is open to any student who is interested in perfecting his/her skills in dealing with the public through training and competition in various speech and interpretive categories of forensics.


Events include poetry reading, prose reading, speaking, and group interpretation. Forensics is usually held after school, and students compete with forensics squads from other area schools. After school meets are held. Advanced competitions may be held on weekends.
