School Yard Rap is a company created for one purpose: to Educate through Entertainment. Founded by a veteran teacher who used hip-hop in his classroom with outstanding results, School Yard Rap is spreading this engaging method of instruction to schools nation-wide.
School Yard Rap is here to educate students through multimodal and culturally responsive curriculum. By creating excellent music with modern sounds, we strive to make learning experiences both engaging and informative. Our model of; activating schema (making the subject relatable), adding joy (making learning fun), and making students sweat (having students do the bulk of the work to learn by increasing rigor), is the benchmark of every lesson we provide. Grounded in scientific evidence, and molded through years of experience, School Yard Rap is kid tested and teacher approved.
