About Lakenheath ES

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.

LES Goal:

Lakenheath Elementary School will increase the number of students reading on or above grade level from 81% to 83%, with no more than 8% scoring in the below level category, as measured by the BAS rubric in May, 2020.

LES Strategies:

GRAIR: Guided Reading and Accountable Independent Reading
Staff will work with small groups of students to meet their specific, individual reading needs, while other students read self selected texts based on interests, readability and availability.
