Millard Lefler Middle School opened its doors for the first time on September 12, 1955. Our school is named after Mr. Millard Lefler, a former assistant principal at Lincoln High and superintendent of schools from 1920 to 1948. During his tenure as superintendent, Mr. Lefler oversaw the implementation of the junior high school system, vocational training in the high schools, and adult education programs in the Lincoln Public Schools. Lefler is proud to continue his tradition of excellence.
From our Principal
Welcome to Lefler Middle School, where the Lions ROAR! It is my privilege to serve Lefler as its next principal and work alongside the talented and dedicated staff in continuing our school vision, which is Building a Community of Learners. The academic achievement and personal growth of every student is our top priority.
Our staff works collaboratively on interdisciplinary teams to ensure that the highest quality of learning is provided to every student. We are committed to helping all students reach their full potential both in and out of the classroom. We know that middle school is a formative time for students and we pledge to make the most of our time with them. We focus on academics as well as social-emotional growth, to build all of the skills your students will need to navigate high school and beyond! We look forward to partnering with you throughout this year and welcome your comments, suggestions and questions.
Lefler Lions show Respect, take Ownership, are Accepting and are Responsible!
