Welcome to the Asheville High/SILSA Speech and Debate team. Speech and Debate allows students to explore public speaking and performance, debate styles and procedures, deepen critical thinking and writing skills, gain confidence as a public speaker, and increase awareness of public events. All in one class!
Our life-changing Club regularly competes on a State and National level. Students learn to present ideas and argue points both pro and con in a convincing and effective manner. Speech and Debate Students at ASHEVILLE HIGH/ SILSA are active in our community, regularly receive College Scholarships and become better leaders in our society.
Thank you our 2018-2019 Sponsors
