• Speech and Debate  

    Club Description

    Speech and Debate Club is an after-school venture that encourages students to sharpen their communication and thinking skills. We will assist students in learning the ability to think and listen critically, understand and respond to opposing viewpoints with integrity and knowledge, and stay current with local, national, and international events.

    The AFMS students work with a group of high school students from the AFHS Speech and Debate Club.

    The same school-wide behavior expectations are to be followed during the club.  If a student chooses not to follow school-wide behavior expectations, they will be asked not to return to the club.
