About Lakenheath Elementary School

Lakenheath Elementary School (LES) opened its doors in 1969 as a K-6 elementary school. Several years ago, after the adoption of the middle level concept at the Lakenheath Middle School, LES became a K-5 elementary school. LES piloted one of the first Sure Start programs in DoDEA, implemented the PSCD program and supported the transition of grades 4-5 to the new Liberty Intermediate School. Currently, LES is a PreK-3.
