Mr. Pfitzer Keeps His Promise
Merced reached it's goal again in the Annual Jogathon and as promised, Mr. Pfitzer danced gangnam style for the school. He had a dance off with other students and even though Mr. Pfitzer didn't win, he was sure a good sport!

Merced is a National Blue Ribbon School
Welcome to Merced Elementary School! Merced is a National Blue Ribbon School, a California Distinguished School, a Title I Achievement School, and a California Business Honor Roll School for Excellence in Education. Merced’s Math & ELA AYP is the highest in the school district for a K-5 public school. AYP stands for Annual Yearly Progress and represents the percentage of students who scored advanced or proficient on the state test. Our AYP in Math is 85 % and 78 % for ELA. Merced’s overall API is the highest in the district of the non-charter public schools with a score of 914 points. API stands for Annual Performance Index and refers to a school’s overall score in both Math and English Language Arts. Merced’s success is based on a synergy where staff, student, and community come together to create an effective learning environment of Merced scholars. We are glad you’re here.
2012 Career Day
Merced had it's annual Career Day and we had some fabulous people come and speak to our students. We had a nurse, nutritionists, electrician, LAFD Fire Captain, K-9 police, a SWAT officer, our own West Covina motorcycle police officers, along with LAPD, and medical transport. We also had former MLB baseball player, David Palmer, along with West Covina High's football coach and Track/Cross Country Coach too. We had a deaf/hard of hearing teacher who taught the students some sign language. A martial arts athlete shared about his career along with pastry chefs who brought yummy treats! There was such a variety of careers represented that it really helped our students to see some of the possibilities that are out there. If they stay focused and embrace their education, they can be anything they want to be.
