BSI completed the Condon in two phases: with a schoolyard renovation in 1998, and completion of an outdoor classroom in fall 2010. The school is a community resource – including before and after school programs – and it is surrounded, on three sides, by public housing. The principal's goal for the outdoor classroom is to address core underlying issues, including improving expressive oral and written language, increasing stamina when writing, and providing exposure to diverse natural environments.
