The Raytown High School (RHS) Debate and Forensics Squad has been ranked in the top 5% in the nation by the National Forensics League. This marks the 14th time in the past 17 years that RHS’s Debate Squad has been ranked in the top 5-10%.
“The District’s motto of ‘Expect the Exceptional’ is one that we take seriously as we prepare for our competitions, and we strive to leave a positive legacy for those that will follow,” Debate Teacher Mark Harris said. “The banner that I have at the front of the classroom reads, ‘Championships are won with practice and preparation; the trophies are picked up at the tournament’.”
The annual ranking is given based on competitive and service related activities the students participate in throughout the year.
