Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Merced High School, home of the Bears, where our mission is: To equip all students with the academic, vocational, and social skills necessary to succeed in a dynamic society.

This mission is a collaborative effort of staff, students, parents, and the community working together to develop a positive and productive learning community that supports students' progress toward successful academic and social transition to college and/or career readiness.

Merced High provides students with a balanced educational program including relevant and rigorous academic course offerings; a diverse range of elective classes; and connections to school through well-established music, Ag., and athletic programs and clubs.

The Merced High staff understands the rich tradition that makes Merced High School the "Home of Scholars and Champions." We are personally and professionally invested in leading future generations of MHS alumni to keep the Bear Country legacy alive and well.

Have a wonderful 2016/2017 school year, and Go Bears!
Jon Schaefer
