Zoo School!

There is no other educational adventure in all of Michigan quite like the Zoo School experience. Located at John Ball Zoological Garden, Zoo School is designed to heighten an awareness of the environment, stimulate creative thinking, develop leadership, promote intellectual growth, and increase self-esteem. Zoo School takes hands-on learning to a whole new level as students engage in learning activities throughout the zoo's natural environment that meet all core subject and curriculum areas in math, science, reading, writing, and social studies
