The Papillion-La Vista School District is headquartered in Papillion, Nebraska. The school district covers all of Papillion, La Vista, and a small portion of Bellevue.

Famous quotes containing the words vista, public and/or schools:

    Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;
    Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see
    A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
    And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    Columbus stood in his age as the pioneer of progress and enlightenment. The system of universal education is in our age the most prominent and salutary feature of the spirit of enlightenment, and it is peculiarly appropriate that the schools be made by the people the center of the day’s demonstration. Let the national flag float over every schoolhouse in the country and the exercises be such as shall impress upon our youth the patriotic duties of American citizenship.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
