For more than 30 years the Overbrook Forensics Team has been a successful component of the school’s curriculum. As an extra-curricular activity, the program seeks to help students gain self-confidence and poise in public speaking.

The Overbrook Forensics Team is a charter member of the National Junior Forensics League. The team, which consists of interested students in grades five through eight, competes in various tournaments throughout the diocese. Students have the opportunity to enter different categories to perform, including dramatic or humorous interpretation, storytelling, original oratory, duet improvisation, one act play, and others.

The Overbrook Forensics Team is coached by Mrs. Diane Meier. Mrs. Meier is a 5th grade homeroom teacher at Overbrook School. She was a member of the forensics team and studied under Mrs. Cathie Stamps at St. Cecilia Academy.
