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!!

As a parent of a new 8th grade (miltary) child at LMS, we are very happy with the curriculm, extracurricular activites, teacher involvement, and staff. The teachers are in touch with the needs of the middle school student. My son looks forward to going to school everyday. He is amazed the principal knows his first name and greets him.

My son is in the 7th grade at Lamberton. We have had such a positive experience. There are so many choices from classes to extracurricular activities. I was concerned about feeling disconnected when he entered Middle School , however, the staff seems to have great communication with parents. Compared to other Middle Schools I have had experiences with....Lamberton has been the best hands down.

This school has a great principal and staff. Our son did very well here for 6th grade. The only thing I would question is the gifted program. Other than that, they're great, the kids really support each other and problems seem to be minimal.

Lamberton has quality academic programs in almost every area. Good selection of arts and extracurricular activities to choose from. I think parent involvement was above the norm. The faculty and staff were very responsive.

The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
