Zoo School is a self-guided experience that fits within your school day from 9:45 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Before your visit, you’ll receive supplemental materials, including standards-based activities to guide you through animal exhibits and help make the most of your day.
At Zoo School, your class will explore animal-focused areas of the park while engaging in self-guided activities provided by Busch Gardens. Due to the educational focus of the program, rides, shows and attractions are not included in the Zoo School experience.
