    I've never heard of a zoo in a high school before. Is this more common in other countries?

    A lot of schools here in Czechia has a miniature "zoo corner" with a few easy species, you know guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes etc.

    I don´t know of any such place that could pass as a full-blown zoo. But high school in town Litomyšl that offers apprenticeship in agriculture, farming mechanisation, gardening and animal husbandry, keeps a collection of 350 species within its areal, mostly reptiles.
