The mission of Forensics is to provide an opportunity for students to enhance communication skills through participation in Theatre, Debate and Speech activities. Forensics promotes these activities through interscholastic competition as a means to develop a student’s lifelong skills and values, as well as the public’s awareness of the value of speech, debate, and communication education.

Forensics is a part of the Middle School Language Arts program and meets the curriculum requirements for public speaking. SMS students participate in local Forensics Meets and gain practice in their speaking skills.
