The School is a large building located in the central part of the city. To the west, across the street, is located the Yubileiny Service Center.
The building has an 'H' structure. Randomly-spawned Loners, Mercenaries, Zombified Stalkers or occasionally mutants such as Rodents or Pseudodogs will spawn in the second floor of the eastern part of the building. The third floor is blocked by two unopenable gates. There is also a basement in which NPCs and the player can hide during emissions.
Before the final mission, Duty member Zulu can be found in the south-east part of the building, attacked by Snorks. He is part of an optional mission that requires the player to eliminate all the Snorks, doing so rewards the player with the unique Zulu's RP-74. During the Evacuation, the squad will go in front of the building, where a lot of snorks will attack the squad, as well as a psychic wave.
