Forensics is a term used for public speaking and debate.

The Middle School Forensic program offers seven interpretive and public speaking categories for students to explore: Dramatic Interpretation, Duo-Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Storytelling, Extemporaneous Speaking, Original Oratory and Public Forum Debate.
