Clubs & Activities

3 students standing together

Student clubs are a key component to a comprehensive education as well as a vibrant school community. Denver South is a huge proponent of student involvement and exploration of individual interests. Our “club menu” features longstanding clubs revolving around identity and interest as well as new clubs that have blossomed into competitive teams beyond Denver South.

Speech and Debate

Speech and Debate is a competitive club. Our members pit their thinking and speaking skills against those of students from other metro high schools in Saturday competitions from October to April in such events as Debate, Oratory, Extemporaneous, Drama, Poetry, Humor and Duet Interpretation. Competitors are rewarded with improved speaking skills, lightning-fast thinking skills, and the pleasure of beating their peers from other schools. Students are also able to earn membership and awards from the national speech organization – the National Forensics League, and may win a spot to compete at the National Speech Tournament in June.
