RAP at a Glance

Realizing Amazing Potential (RAP) is the Lawndale Elementary School District’s before and after school program. The program expands and enhances classroom instruction for LESD students.

Where formal education ends, the RAP program begins. We create real world learning environments where students have opportunities to explore, engage, and develop significant life skills.

Students in TK - 8th grade can join our morning program from 6:45 AM - 8:30 AM and/or our afternoon program from school dismissal to 6:00 PM. Join today!

Active Learning

Learning and memory recall of new knowledge is strengthened through different exposures- seeing, hearing, touching, and doing.  After school & summer activities should involve young people in "doing"- activities that allow them to be physically active, stimulate their innate curiosity, and that are hands-on and project-based.

Collaborative Learning

After school & summer programs should help young people build team skills that include listening to others, supporting group learning goals, and resolving differences and conflicts.  Collaborative learning happens when learners engage in a common task where each individual depends on and is accountable to each other.

Meaningful Learning

Learning is meaningful when youth have some ownership over the learning topic, that means to assess their own progress, and when the learning is relevant to their own interests, experiences, and the relevance is important to all youth.

Learning That Expands Horizons

After-school & summer programs should provide learning opportunities that take youth beyond their current experience and expand their horizons.  They should go beyond the walls of their facilities to increase young people's knowledge of their surrounding neighborhood and the larger global community.
