Merced County Office of Education


​​​​​​​​​Merced Scholars Charter School Staff


Hello I’m Mr. Pintor!  I am currently the principal of Merced Scholars Charter School and Come Back Charter School. I have been a teacher in alternative education/student programs at the Merced County Office of Education for over 18 years. In October of 2012, I became the Vice Principal/Teacher for Merced Scholars Charter School. I received my Bachelors degree in Economics from UCL​A in 1994. After working in private industry for 8 years, I decided to move back home to Merced and become a teacher. I currently possess my single subject credential in Foundational-Level Mathematics.

I believe that all students are capable of learning and should learn in a way that works best for them. I am a firm believer in the use of technology in instruction, learning, and everyday activities. As an educator, I am here to help students understand and adapt to their individual learning styles in order to ensure their success. I am very excited to be a part of the staff at Merced Scholars Charter School.

I find great pleasure in the opportunity to work with parents and students on an individual/small group basis. It is a unique and rewarding experience. The environment at MSCS is one of collaboration and respect between staff, parents, and students, creating an educational atmosphere that is truly one of a kind. I look forward to working in education for years to come and to impact others to be the best they can be.​


Office Staff

Hi I am Miss Cindy! I am the administrative school site secretary. I’ve been at MSCS since shortly after the schools’ inception, in August of 2005.

​As Secretary, my position is to​ assist students, parents, staff, other schools, and the general public, and to maintain a friendly, professional, comfortable, and safe environment to everyone that enters. I am responsible for collecting all students’ legal documents and enrollment forms, oversee the data entry functions of the student information system (AERIES). I am also in charge of the student master schedules, maintain student cumulative records, provide information to other agencies public and private, and explain enforce policies and procedures of the school.

​​I like the relationships I have formed with the other staff members as well as students and families that have come and gone over the years. I also enjoy seeing all students succeed. My aim is to stay in my current position as we continue to watch our school grow.​
