Black History Month

February 01, 2023 Black History Month celebrates the achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their immeasurable impact on the history of the United States.

Welcome to Shirley Lanham ES

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.

Arnn ES School

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.
