On February 17
the original Papillion School, built in 1893, was razed to make room for the new junior high school, which was opened in 1967. Nine years later a new junior high was built in neighboring La Vista
to help ease crowding at the current school. Before a new high school was open, these two junior highs both enrolled ninth grader students. Currently ninth graders attend both high schools. The school's original boundary was Papio Creek
; today it is the city limits.
