Merced Valley Community School



Principal Message

It is a privilege to serve as Principal of Merced Valley Community School. As principal I will remain committed to finding the highest quality people and programs to help all our students accomplish their own educational goals. Merced Valley has a caring staff who STRIVE to help students grow as individuals and we believe each student can be a success. We are committed to offering a student-centered educational experience that provides opportunities to explore various post-high school options.  

We will work together as a team to provide students with opportunities to explore and experience success. Our students’ successes take place with the support of parents/families, school staff, and our community partners. We will continue to focus on the power of positive working relationships and giving students opportunities to not only reveal, affirm, and discover their inner wealth and personal strengths, but also to develop new skills to apply in school, in their future workplaces, and in their post-secondary educational endeavors.

Our goal is to work with students, their families, and the community to enable students to master the academic and social skills required to be successful as they progress towards their chosen careers or colleges. We want to help students navigate their teenage years, be successful, trustworthy, respectful, optimistic, goal-oriented, and have a never-give-up attitude.

We look forward to working with you this year!
