BSI will complete the Mendell schoolyard in two phases: a schoolyard renovation in 2000, and an outdoor classroom completed in 2010. The Mendell is a small neighborhood school with walkers numbering almost 70% of the student enrollment. Ninety-one percent of students at the Mendell receive free or reduced cost lunch. The Mendell is committed to educating the whole child. A new Outdoor Classroom will support the school in meeting its academic and healthy child commitments.
