Eighty one 5th graders performed their final act of school house rock at Lamar Reese Magnet School of the Arts on Wednesday night.

Students learn core subjects like math and science through music, dance, and drama.

Instructors say productions the productions help students retain what they learn.

"It's a different approach to learning, rather than sitting behind a desk and taking notes,  this way you get the kids involved and the retain it better by doing that," said George Darrisaw, Music & Fine Arts Chair.

Dougherty County teacher of the year Stephen Davis was also part of the production.

He played a teacher.
