The Papillion-La Vista School District is headquartered in Papillion, Nebraska, United States. The district covers all of Papillion, La Vista, and a small portion of Bellevue. The district was originally established as the Papillion School District, but with the rapid growth of La Vista (incorporated in 1960), the name of the city was officially added to the school district's name in 1987 by former Superintendent Roger Miller.

The school district serves over 11,000 students. The district has two high schools (Papillion-La Vista South High School and Papillion La Vista Senior High School). It is also home to two junior high schools (Papillion Junior High and La Vista Junior High). Most students from Papillion Junior High graduate to Papillion-La Vista South High School, while students from La Vista Junior High move on to attend Papillion-La Vista Senior High School. Papillion La Vista Senior High School is sometimes referred to as "North", even though the word "north" is not in its name.

There are 14 elementary schools: Anderson Grove, Bell, Carriage Hill. G. Stanley Hall, Golden Hills, Hickory Hill, La Vista West, Rumsey Station, Parkview Heights, Patriot, Portal, Tara Heights, Trumble Park, and Walnut Creek.


Superintendent Rick Black announced his retirement at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. The current superintendent is Andrew Rikli, who began on July 1, 2013.
