In 1957 enrollment in the Papillion-LaVista School District was less than 400 students. BY 1960 it was 691, and by 1966 there were 2223 students enrolled. At that time there was one junior-senior high school for the district. With the state of the 1981-82 school year, over 5900 students were enrolled in the Papillion-LaVista District. There is one senior high school and two junior highs. Also, the population of the school district now exceeds 2500 people. The two communities of Papillion and LaVista have changed from small rural communities to suburban communities with a much wider range of public concerns and problems. With the sizable change in the school districts general population and school enrollment over the last twenty-five years, the programs available for students have increased drastically. In addition to a greatly expanded academic program, the extra-curricular programs have grown from less than a dozen in the junior-senior high of 1957 tot a total of 73 programs and activities in the 1981-82 school year.
