Lamberton has the academic programs that the commonwealth of Pennsylvania mandates. They teach to prepare for the Benchmark Test, which is given every 6 weeks in each major subject. They do have AP Classes in American History, English Literature and Composition, and Calculus. They also support Dual Enrollment classes. They administer the PSAT and SAT tests, and have SAT Prep courses in English.
In 2007, the percent of students who scored proficient or advanced on the PSSA in math (19%) and in reading (21%) was lower than the state target (Math-45%, Reading-54%). Lamberton's achievement on the PSSA is lower than the district and state averages. However, Lamberton made AYP in 2007 because its performance has improved over the last three years.
In 2009-10 the school received a major upgrade to the classroom acoustics to meet ANSI/ASA S12.60-2009 standards, which is documented in this video.
If Lamberton would have stayed open for one more year then they might have got over its two hump of not getting past the second round of the playoffs. Carried by senior Michael Stewart, Ahmir Kellum-Morgan, Darrell Ellis, Bernard McIntyre and junior Theodore Kilgore would have had a very strong chance at wining the championship if stayed open for one more year. With the shooting of SF/PF Amir Kellum- Morgan, the slashing of athletic SF/PF Michael Stewart, defense of PF Bernard McIntyre, the scoring mentality of SG Darrell Ellis, and all around game of PG Theodore Kilgore. You would have to put them in the conversation with Martin Luther King, Math Civics Science, Newman Gaetti, Imhotep, and Constitution.
