Children will attend school in two shifts: from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 13:00 to 16:00. A school bus will take students accompanied by a teacher to the metro station. There are 34 routes for this purpose.

Furthermore, the city budget will provide meals for schoolchildren in the metro. Counselling and medical assistance will be available at the stations on request.

The classrooms were equipped with soundproofing, proper air circulation and lighting to facilitate the educational process.

"No other city in the world has experience in things like this. Kharkiv is the first! We have thought through everything, including getting the children here, how they will spend their time, and what teachers will do with them. And starting from 4 September, classes for more than 1,000 children will start here. This is the first step, and when parents see the conditions created here, I am sure the number of applicants will grow," says Mayor Ihor Terekhov.
