"DebateDrills has given my son Max an extraordinary community of mentors and friends who share his intellectual curiosity and passion for debate. They have helped him develop critical and analytical thinking skills that are not part of the standard high school curriculum but are essential for success in college, graduate school, and almost any demanding profession or career. My son's high school years are immeasurably richer and more rewarding because he has been lucky enough to be part of DebateDrills."
