Lisha Kill Middle School was created as an educational response to the needs and characteristics of youngsters in early adolescence.

Like any middle school, Lisha Kill’s organization responds to the full range of intellectual, physical, social, emotional and developmental needs of pre-teenagers and teenagers. Lisha Kill Middle School houses approximately 600-plus students in grades 5-8. These students come from Veeder and Saddlewood elementary schools.

Lisha Kill has about 100 teachers, teacher assistants and support staff members. As a middle school and a district we value that “All students can learn well.” We foster this philosophy by instilling integrity, excellence, responsibility, and optimism in all that our school does.
