Believe to Achieve!
Reopened since 1984, Lamberton Public School offers many exciting programs to meet the needs of all of our students! Our community includes the area surrounding our school, the Sentinel/Fountainhead area, and York University. We presently accommodate a total of 325 students from Kgn. to Grade 5. We represent 30 different language groups, with approx. 74% of our families speaking English as a second language at home. We are very proud of our school's rich cultural heritage.
In our endeavour to meet curriculum expectations, we continue to develop a positive learning environment where academic success is the norm. Parents are encouraged to become full partners, and teachers regularly seek to improve their practice.
At Lamberton, we continue to immerse our students in a balanced literacy program where teacher modelling, reading groups and celebration of print are the focus. We have a special focus on Writing and our staff has fully implemented the Lucy Calkins Writing Program.
Mathematics also continues to be a strong focus for our school. Staff work closely together, and plan in teams, to address the needs of all of our students. Overall, we will focus on improving communication and problem-solving to increase our EQAO Math results.

Morning Meal Program
Lamberton has a daily, Morning Meal program. Each day, students are offered a well-balanced snack to set them up for the day! All students are offered a combination of fruit, vegetables and/or dairy products, delivered to their classrooms. We respect the dietary restrictions of all of our students. We believe that we need to meet the needs of the whole child.
At Lamberton, we hold monthly assemblies to recognize and celebrate those students who have modelled the T.D.S.B.'s monthly character traits. The principal leads the assembly with the help of our "Super 5's", a group of Grade 5 students who are aspiring to leadership within the school. Teachers introduce those students from their classrooms who best exemplify the traits.
Focus on Equity
At Lamberton, we provide our staff with guidance to implement an inclusive approach to the design and delivery of curriculum using the James Banks Continuum, as well as opportunities for students to research and make school-wide presentations to celebrate multicultural events throughout the year. Our front foyer showcase, reflects the on-going diversity of our community.
