Title I Academic Achievement Award, 2009

Merced is a Title I Academic Achievement Award winning school!




Welcome to the Home of the Panthers

Welcome to the home of the Merced Elementary School Panthers! We are one of eight elementary schools in the West Covina Unified School District located in the beautiful San Gabriel Valley of southern California. We are proud to be a National Blue Ribbon School, which is largely due to the tremendous effort of our talented and dedicated staff. We know how important these first years of school are for your child, and you can be assured that we do everything possible to help him/her succeed.

Take some time to become familiar with our new website, and see for yourself how simple it is to find answers to your questions, whether it be about the lunch program, our enrichment activities , or how to contact a staff member. We consider you to be an important part of our educational team, and we encourage you to get involved.

Principal's Message

Mr. Gordon Pfitzer, Principal

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! Our students are busy making discoveries and learning new things while having fun in the process! The teaching staff and I are working hard to make this year the best one yet, and with your help, we know we can succeed.

Parents who get involved in the educational process are what make a school the best it can be. My door is always open to you, and my staff and I want to hear your suggestions; most importantly, we want you to be a part of your child’s learning experience. For information on how you can participate, check out the Get Involved page; there is room for anyone who wants to help.


Yours in Learning,

Gordon Pfitzer
