I enjoyed High school very much! From the first day they sit you down and make you feel at home. Throughout the years they add onto curriculum to improve what you’re learning. Teachers make you feel welcome and inclusive. Variety of classes and electives to help sort through career paths. Tons of clubs and organizations to join and become part of a family. My experience at Papillion Lavista South was extraordinary and I don’t think there’s another quiet as supportive as this one.
The teachers are amazing. They are very knowledgeable about the subject matter and genuinely care about their students. There are tons of clubs and activities, and all students are encouraged to get involved. There is also a great sense of school spirit. Proud to be a Titan!
