Welcome to George Whittell High School (GWHS). My name is Crespin Esquivel, and I am the Principal at GWHS. 

We are a 7-12 grade high school of approximately 205 students.  We are the only 4-day week school in Lake Tahoe.  GWHS is nestled in the amazing forest of Lake Tahoe in Zephyr Cove, Nevada at an elevation of 6,400 ft.  We pride ourselves as being a Nevada High Achieving High School. We have a strong community and parent support base for our students and staff.

Read my complete Principal's Message here.

SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENT CONSORTIUM (SBAC) - In 2010, Nevada adopted the Common Core State Standards and shortly after became a governing state of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. This school year, Whittell was selected to be field tested. To read more about how this will affect our school and your students, please click here.


PARENT SURVEY - We are asking parents to take a few minutes to complete the parent survey by clicking on this link or you can visit the DCSD website @ www.dcsd.k12.nv.us and click on the Parent Survey link. The link will close at the end of the day on Friday, May 16, 2014.  If you are unable to access the survey via the posted link, or would prefer to complete the survey in hard copy, please contact the school office @ 588-2446.  This information provides us with feedback on how we are doing with various aspects of your child's education and the services we provide.  We value your input and appreciate the time you are taking to complete the survey.
