RSA December 2017 Highlights
Congratulations RSA High School Debate Team!
Rising Star Academy's debate team joined multiple schools from the Tri-State area in Chappaqua, New York in November and Princeton, New Jersey in December. These were the first tournaments of the 2017-2018 school year for the East Coast High School Parliamentary Debate Program (HSPDP), which is run under the umbrella of the English Speaking Union. One of our teams won first place in the tournament, and as a school we placed 1st and 3rd overall respectively. RSA administration and staff would like to congratulate the debate team for its outstanding achievement, and wish them continued success in the upcoming tournaments. Takbir!
