Welcome to George Whittell High School (GWHS). My name is Crespin Esquivel, I am the Principal at GWHS.
George Whittell High School (GWHS) is a small 7-12 secondary school nestled in the forest of Lake Tahoe in Zephyr Cove, Nevada. The school is one of four high schools in Douglas County School District. At GWHS, we pride ourselves as being a Nevada High Achieving School. Students range from high to low socio-economic backgrounds, creating a diverse climate of learners. As of count day, GWHS had an enrollment of 211 students, 74 enrolled in middle school and 137 enrolled in high school.

INFINITE CAMPUS (IC) is our new computer program that replaced PowerSchool. Infinite Campus is a district-wide student information system (SIS) designed to manage attendance, grades, schedules, assessments and other information about the students. Letters were mailed home on August 16th with your access ID number that you will need to set up your account.
Parents can use the Campus Portal to receive information on their student’s schedule, assignments, grades and attendance. They can also update their phone numbers, email, home address, student demographics and contact information.
Only parents and guardians designated with legal rights to student records may receive a Campus Portal account. Each parent/guardian with such rights receives their own separate account. Accounts are NOT shared among more than one parent/guardian within households, i.e., there are no "household" accounts in the Portal. Each parent/guardian Portal account provides access to information for those students for which the parent/guardian has legal rights to records.
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.
