    My kids go to LaVista West Elementary and we love it. The teachers are the best for my kids needs. Everyone meaning teachers principal and all the staff are wonderful. I recommend this school to everyone I know. We could not ask for a better school to send our kids to.

    As a neighbor to this school I am dissappointed with the lack of follow up by this website to update its information. The school is fantastic and has been under great leadership since the time of the past survey. Subsudized lunches should never be a way to rank a school. Visit the school and visit our neighborhood you will see what make la Vista West so vital to the community and not to mention the Princpal of the Year for the state of Nebraska leads this educational team.

    I use to go here and loved it. I wish my kids could go here to. But can't we live in Papillion now so they have to go somewhere else

    Both of my children has wonderfully caring teachers this year. They experienced many different learning styles and used a lot of technology in the classroom. The staff has been easy to contact and communicate with throughout the year.
