Lamberton is probably one of the worst neighborhood public schools in Philadelphia. That said, this year there has been minor reform, (new Principal more security/staff.) and no uniform which only adds fuel to the bully fire. Next they add TVs to the Cafeteria. Now I'm all for fun at school and all, but if the kids can hardly read and write as it is, what good does an investment in TVs do. Why not some new books or computers that WORK. As for teachers there are only a few who actually show they care for education.

i agree...this school used to be one of the best schools in the city but over the last 5 to 10 years it has drastically changed. I do not recommend this school for your child. If you're looking for a good school in the area try Harambee Institute.

HS Principal does not seem interested in the child at all and the children even say it. If you are a parent of a child here you have to stay on top of the administration who seldom return phone calls. I really don't think they care about where the children will go after graduating which I can guarantee is not far unless you get them extra help

Horrible school, the children in this school do not focus on the education. They are more focused on follow fashion and clets in the school. The kids are very disrespectful to the teachers and staff. Most of the behaves the children show can reflect back on how they were brought up as a child. I use to attend lamberton and I left. I do not recommend this so to any child that is planning on making something very successful out of themselves.

I graduated from the High School, I'm also a parent of a child who currently attends the HS. One thing for sure if you don't apply yourself at this school you won't get much out of it.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
