Counselor Mtg. (PM)
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.

Results for each school will be provided to the site administrator in early June 2015. If you are unable to access the survey via the following link, or would prefer to complete the survey in paper and pencil format, please contact your child’s school office. We value your input and appreciate the time you are taking to provide it!
