Evanston Township High School is a large public school located in Evanston, IL, just north of Chicago, with a racially and economically diverse student population.

Welcome to the ETHS Speech and Debate Team's website. Here you can find our calendar for the upcoming months and a description of our team. And some sweet pictures.

  • Our team has monthly meetings for our students of color to share experiences, support one another, and help our coaches be more responsive to all of our students. The first meeting for this group will be after school on Wednesday, September 27th, in N-125.
  • Our team has monthly meetings for our white students to improve their racial literacy, identify the way racism shapes their worldview and influences their behavior, and develop strategies to disrupt and combat racism. The first meeting for this group will be at 4:00 PM on Monday, September 25th, in N-125.
  •  Students interested in participating in or supporting this effort can come to our opening practice for Spanish language debate after school on Tuesday, September 26th, in E-111.
  • We need two or three students to recruit during the activities fair this Wednesday, periods 4, 5, and 6. Please email Jeff if you're interested.
  • We will have a parent and guardian meeting on Tuesday, September 26th, at 6:30 pm. The meeting will be in room E-212 at ETHS. I look forward to meeting our new parents and guardians and seeing our returning families again.
  • Parent/Guardian consent is required to participate in any athletic or student activity at ETHS.  Parent/Guardian consent can be updated via Home Access Center (HAC) and the “Update Registration” tab.
  • To be added to our weekly update emails this year, all students (new and old) must complete the ETHS Speech and Debate Contact Info Form.
