Lamberton Middle School is a fantastic school with a administration that is engaged with the students, the teachers/staff, and parents! My child is on the Autism Spectrum, and I have been SO PLEASED with the teachers and Autism Support Staff because they have been able to focus and target those areas where my daughter needs support, without smothering her. She is challenged academically, and receives academic and homework help when she requests it. She has been able to participate in extra-curricular activities (Choir) and take electives (our last school district required her to be in a basic skills class even though her functional level was far above that). I feel that the principal, Mr. Colestock, and vice principal, Mr. Gogoj are engaged with the staff and are responsive to parents. The 8W Team--led by Mr. Kiehl, with Mrs. Akujobi, Ms. Surkosky, Mr. Dietrich, Ms. Fendrich, Ms. Schalles--are responsive to questions and comments from me. Additional classes taught by Ms. Bair, Ms. Maag, Ms. Chizmar, Ms. D'Urso, Ms. Treffinger, Mr. Ross, Mr. Over, Mrs. Gogoj were a great as well!! The Autism Support staff--led by Cherie Kiehl--were fantastic!!
