Welcome to Speech & Debate!

Arguably, the best.

Who are we?

   Welcome to the Denver School of the Arts High School Speech and Debate Team! We are a passionate and dedicated club, driven by a shared love for the art of public speaking and the thrill of intellectual competition. Our team is entirely student-run, and our members pour their hearts and souls into honing their skills. We understand that success in speech and debate requires a significant time commitment, but it's a commitment we gladly make, as it helps us grow not only as debaters but also as individuals. With the guidance of our exceptional coaches, we strive to achieve excellence in every tournament we participate in. Join us on this journey of growth, camaraderie, and academic excellence as we sharpen our voices and sharpen our minds.

When We Meet:

   We meet in Karwin's Room (Room 019) every Monday after school until 5:30 and every Saturday from 9:00 to 12:00 in the morning. Feel free to drop by Karwin's room any day at lunch!
