Papillion La Vista Community Schools

By: Ryan Renner, Realtor

I have helped many families moving to Omaha. Contact me if you have any questions about the Omaha area or need help buying a home.

What originally began with one teacher and one class of students has grown substantially over the years and decades into what’s now known as Papillion La Vista Community Schools. The district serves more than 11,000 students.

Papillion La Vista High School

The district includes 15 elementary schools, three middle schools, two traditional high schools, as well as an alternative high school known as IDEAL.

Boundary Map

The district serves two cities in Sarpy County – Papillion and La Vista.

Papillion La Vista Community Schools boasts the highest graduation rate in the state among districts of its size, as well as high student performance in the subjects of math, English, and science.

High school students have the option of earning college credit while finishing their high school studies. It’s also one of only a select number of school districts in the nation with District Accreditation from AdvancED.

On a side note, “Papillion” is often mispronounced by non-locals. I created a pronunciation page to help pronounce “Papillion” and other Omaha-specific words.
