Millikan Middle School Affiliated Charter & Performing Arts Magnet

A. Bacos » Home


Hello everyone, everywhere-

My name is Alex Bacos and this year I am a Physical Education teacher for Millikan.

I am now in my 7th year here at MMS and have been with the Los Angeles Unified School district for 25 fun-filled years. My first job in the district was as a teacher at Northridge Middle School. I taught there until my oldest daughter was born (I have 3) and then took 3 years off to be a stay-at-home dad. They were the best three years of my life.
When I returned to teaching I landed at Madison Middle School in North Hollywood where I spent about 10 years as a teacher and then counselor. After stops at Arleta High School and Mt. Gleason Middle School for a little more than a year, I found my way to my current position at Millikan.

We are un-like any other middle school and the depth and breadth of what students can learn and participate in here is amazing.

I have many interests that include sports(I play a lot of golf), music, reading, the theatre and travel.
However the thing I enjoy most is spending time with my wife and our 3 wonderful daughters.

There are no limits to what our students can accomplish and it is my sincere hope that each student leaves this place knowing what they need to do to find success in High School and the adventures of life beyond.
