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.

New School Attendance Requirement for Driver’s Licenses - Beginning January 1, 2015, State Law requires that anyone under the age of 18 who applies for an instruction permit, driver’s license or driver authorization card must provide the DMV with proof that he or she meets the minimum school attendance requirements. For more information, please click here.
Sports - If you plan on participating in a spring sport, please click on Athletics and towards the bottom of that page you will find a link for the GWHS Sports Packet. This packet must be completed and turned in before you can practice. Please note the athletic fee has increased to $35 plus $10 for your Student Body Card for a total of $45.
Yearbooks are on sale for $55 each. The price will increase monthly so buy yours now!!
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.
