The Green Club at the school has planted and maintained a native arboretum, which includes 38 species of trees, shrubs, and grasses.  The Fairchild Challenge is also a component of the school's Green Club. On occasion, QR codes and digital devices have been utilized for research in the arboretum.  Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden also partnered with the school in order to conduct the Million Orchid Project.   The project is meant to re-establish the Cyrtopodium punctatum , commonly known as the Florida Cowhorn orchid.   In 2017, NBC Miami reported that a botany class continued working on the Million Orchid Project, and wrote, "the kids are learning real science, aided by technology. They use iPads with Google Sheets to keep track of and share data with each other. It's invaluable experience for the students."
