Debate Team

The Debate Team is made up of students from a variety of grades who share a common appreciation and enthusiasm for debate and competition. As a founding member of the Eastern Massachusetts Debate League, FHS debate teams take part in nine rounds of debate with 11 area schools from Eastern Massachusetts each year. Debates take place on five Wednesday nights from early December through late February. Practices are held every week, beginning in late September. The debates are both entertaining and competitive. Each team is judged and scored on both their knowledge of the debate topic as well as their debating and public speaking skills. At the end of each season, awards are presented to the best individual and team debaters from the participating schools. Students who participate find it exciting, rewarding and lots of fun.
