"The Debate team has really changed our school. Students who never cared about APS are proud of our team, and they're always asking how we did at tournaments, congratulating us, and wishing us good luck. When BPS threatened to close the school this year, our debaters spoke up at a school board meeting and they decided to merge our school with another school, specifically so we could keep the debate team. The debate team is the reason that many students are proud to say they went to APS."
