Sonic's Schoolhouse is an educational computer game that teaches young learners mathematics, reading, and spelling.[1] In addition, players can earn access to two mini-games (a collect-the-rings game and a match-the-statues game) and a "field trip" section which gives them numerous facts on the various animals in the game.[1] It was developed by Orion Interactive (which later became MGM Interactive) and published by Sega and Bap Interactive. It was the first game to be developed by Orion, although the game is now owned by MGM themselves.

The entire game plays in a similar fashion to id Software's Wolfenstein 3D, in that you play in a world that has no variation in height and is largely composed of right angles.[1] Players pick up nearby answers (ranging from bouncing letters and numbers to balloons with various pictures on them) to shoot back at a blackboard so as to answer it (usually filling in the blank; in the reading section the player must match up pictures with their words instead), or otherwise recycle (much to Sonic's pleasure).[1]

Sonic the Hedgehog himself is not playable, but acts as the guide.[1] Instead, the player must choose from numerous animals to play as during the course of the video game.[1] Doctor Eggman and his robots also show up to steal the player's answer (or in the ring mini-game, to steal all of the player's rings).[1] The player can find the replaced a clock character if he looks on the files of the CD on his Windows Explorer.

The sprites used for Sonic come from the cancelled Sonic X-Treme.
