Melissa Bako


Dr. Bako is thrilled to start her 5th year at Santiago High School and 17th year in education. Previously, Dr. Bako served students and families as an Assistant Principal at Corona High School. Dr. Bako also served as an Athletic Director at Jurupa Hills High School in Fontana before coming over to CNUSD.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Arts in Teaching with a focus on Learning Disabilities from Madonna University. She has also completed her Masters of Science in Education Administration from National University. Dr. Bako earned her Doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Brandman University in the Spring of 2020.

When Dr. Bako isn't working, she enjoys camping, spending time outdoors, and living life to its fullest with her beautiful daughter (Aubrey, 4), her 3-time Ironman World Champion boyfriend, and her 2 dogs (Kona and Maximus). She lives by the theme #livinit, which is a theme shared by her family and close friends. It means that every moment matters and we are always #livinit: every day, every moment, and in everything we do. #livinit is a lifestyle, it encourages one to embrace things that make one feel alive, to maintain physical and emotional health, and to approach every change and challenging situation with the spirit of #livinit.

Dr. Bako is looking forward to an amazing year at Santiago High School and being ALL IN with the Shark Family!
