I really like the school because it has a friendly environment and the school has a lot of diversity. There are certain aspects that I would change like having sports or clubs that are related to sports. I would like some electives like music, art, dance and maybe even cooking! Nonetheless, I really enjoy the two years that I've been at BioTECH!

BioTECH has great potential. Its connection with the Fairchild Botantical Gardens and Zoo Miami campuses have allowed for once-in-a-lifetime experiences, helping to rear the next generation of scientists. BioTECH students can boast high end research skills and opportunities, including the opportunity to join an internship at either campus. We dissect iguanas and bats, measure and identify plants species, and conduct individual scientific investigations in our field of interest. Our science teachers are excellent, our zoology and research teachers are stellar, the math teachers are amazing and our history teachers are exemplary. Our art program is unique, allowing certifications in Adobe Photoshop. Wildlife photography is an amazing class that allows us to express ourselves outside the limits of ordinary art classes. However, the specialist school offers few options in clubs, classes, sports, music, and PE outside of the science realm.
I am a junior at Biotech Richmond heights. When people first visit us, we are viewed as a very small school (our Richmond campus consist of a couple hallways and a portable). However, we have two other campuses at Miami Zoo and Fairchild Tropicak Garden. Biotech Highshool is an amazing school that focuses on research,botanical,and zoology studies. Our school stands out from so many. We are able to expand and put our curiosity to the test. The work given to us at Fairchild is my favorite! Being a Biotech student also gives us the advantage of internships,volunteer opportunities, and much more. teachers are more focused on students since it is a small school. Our science teachers are incredible! However math teachers could use improvement
