Riverside High School, in Greer, SC, has one of the nation's largest and  most competitive speech and debate programs. Our over 70 students,  representing almost every demographic imaginable in a public high  school, compete in a rigorous practice and tournament schedule that runs  from September to June.  Most competitions require  travel to  other states, and that gets expensive. In addition to practicing and  competing, students raise money by selling fruit and coupon books,  performing in plays and showcases, washing cars, and hosting spirit  nights.  The team's dedication to practice and fundraising has  paid off in state championships, national trophies, and college  scholarships. More importantly, our students develop communication skills and a base of knowledge that will serve them for a lifetime.
