ROARing with Pride in Temple Terrace
Greco Middle serves Temple Terrace and beyond with pride—our roots have grown deep in our community for decades. As a new prestigious IB Candidate School*, we are focused on developing active learners and internationally-minded students. We have launched our school-wide philosophy in Fall of 2020, guided by International Baccalaureate principles that empower students to empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.
Many students choose Greco and our rigorous STEM and Pre-KAPS (King HS Advanced Placement Scholars) programs and all will be a part of our school-wide IB program.
Scholar Quest high school credit courses include Engineering, Culinary Arts and Computer Science. Greco’s Electives engage students as they sample Agriculture, Band and AVID college readiness before focusing on their favorite options in-depth. Our Sixth Grade Structure helps students feel at home in their new learning environment.
We are a Community School—a hub for the Temple Terrace community—focusing on student success in school and life. Our Cubs are ROARing together with excellence—Responsible, Ownership, Active Learning and Respectable—the traits we work to instill in every student.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org
Greco Middle was built in 1962. The school was named in honor of Mr. Angelo L. Greco, Sr., who was born in Santo Stefano, Sicily, in 1893. He came to the United States when he was 5 years old. Mr. Greco served in the U.S. Army during World War I. After he was married, he and his wife opened their eighth flower shop in Ybor City.
Mr. Greco had a reputation for honesty and integrity. He served as a volunteer interpreter for the U.S. Customs Service. He was so grateful to this country and wanted to express his appreciation. Angelo Greco was urged to run for a position as a School Board Trustee. He was elected trustee and served as chairman for six out of twelve years that he was in office.
Angelo Greco, Sr., died August 23, 1959. Greco Junior High was rededicated in 1997 and renamed Greco Middle School.
