My daughter goes to Lefler as a 6th grader. She loves it! The principal, Mrs. Schrad is an excellent administrator. They have a wonderful gifted Program and a good school atmosphere. All schools have their problems but I'm very happy with my daughters education there.

This is very great I went there for two years and when I moved it felt as if part of me was torn out or I had left home. Lefler is a great school. The teachers care more than you think all they want for students is success in their future. It is ran by one of the greatest principles to, Kelly Schrad, is a very nice, honorable, loyal, and very trusted leader at Lefler.
