Lago Vista started out in the early 1960s as a resort community where boating, hiking and all things nature were the main attractions. Located on the shores of Lake Travis, summer homes sprang up and residents spent fun filled weekends and holidays enjoying the area and the Lake. In the 1980s the community voted to incorporate. At that time there were approximately 2,200 residents, today there are over 5,000 happy people living in Lago Vista.
Lago Vista has its own school district, Lago Vista Independent School District. The district provides education to over 1,000 students at three area campuses. The district, its schools and its parents have formed a tight knit group and rely on each others input to produce well rounded students. These students receive the best possible school experience that revolves around education but has added the necessary extras in the form of sports and extracurricular activities that make school fun. The district continually produces children who score well in state and national testing and are well prepared for the future once they graduate from high school.
