The students are offered accommodation in host American families, each of which is carefully selected preliminarily. To date, the management of the school has already planned the construction of a new residence, which will be intended for pupils of the 8th grade, so that very soon several more classrooms will be able to live on the school grounds.

Special attention is paid to the issue of nutrition in the WMA: three meals a day (if necessary - dietary or vegetarian) are waiting in the school cafeteria of the residents living in the residence. Those who live in a host family are fed once a day - lunch.

The school has a reason for pride in the issue of catering: since 2008, the chef works here to develop a menu for students! Thanks to such a thorough approach to the issue of nutrition, the guys have 5-6 options (for example, sushi) for dinner, a chic salad bar, and a wide assortment of desserts, where ice cream appears a couple of times a week.
