Please see the link on the right side of the school homepage for the SLES specific school supply lists for the 2022-2023 school year. These lists are specific for our school and vary slightly from the Pacific East District supply lists. Thank You!
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the official Shirley Lanham Elementary School (LHES) website. Our goal is to provide current and relevant information about our school to the military families we serve today and those we look forward to welcoming to our campus in the future. Located in the heart of the Kanto Plains, Shirley Lanham Elementary School is a Department of Defense Education Agency ( DoDEA ) school positioned in the center of Naval Air Station Atsugi near Tokyo, Japan.
Although called NAF Atsugi ( NAFA ) we are not actually in the Atsugi-shi limits but are a part of Ayase-shi in the Kanagawa-ken or prefecture. Lanham Elementary School's centralized location makes it easy to access several major transportation centers such as airports, highways, railways and bus lines. It is also close to other major military installations including Camp Zama Army Base, Yokota U.S. Air Force Base and Yokosuka U.S. Navy Base.
