This school is terrible! There is a fight at least once a week. Several students have already been arrested this year for fighting. Bullying is out of control, and the bullies get away with it. If your child attends this school, ask them what kind of music is being played during p.e. And lunch. Explicit lyrics that aren't even played on the radio! These kids are completely out of control, and nothing is being done about it! I've watched several kids being pushed to the ground just trying to get to their bus at dismissal. Where is the supervision at this school? I'm researching options on getting my kids as far away from Greco as I can!

Do not send your children here. This is a horrible place and staff here is very Ghetto. seems like they were all raised in the streets.making the kids think it is acceptable to behave like animals..if the teachers and office does it then what would they believe.this is not the way adults should act and people should keep their kids away from here. ZERO STAR should be available.

Greco Middle School is the worst school ever! My children are currently students there (grades 6&7)..I don't know how any child can focus on learning when there is constant fighting, bullying and other disruptions! I am in the process of removing them from that school as I type this review DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD(REN) TO GRECO MIDDLE SCHOOL!

I was notified by a Hillsborough County Police Officer to remove my child from this school. The "bad element" is so strong that it permeates the positive individuals in the school. So I was told and have sadly experienced first hand. Teachers care about grades only because they reflect on their job performance. They do just enough to follow the golden rule of CYA. Teachers and Faculty, for the most part, do not exhibit the simple courtesies SHOULD BE required of the students. Approriate speach, dress and ettiquette are lost in that facility; therefore, the students aren't any better than their example. If you are not concerned with the element in which your child attends school - enjoy. Otherwise, if your child is always flashing their underwear, speaking street slang, disrespecting others, "trash talkin", cursing, degrading other students or simply looking like they just walked in off a street corner... then your child will fit right in - since nobody there seems to mind, and nobody will lift a finger to make a change no matter how many times, or how loudly you ask. Just stay away.

This school is the worst school in Hillsborough county. The teachers dont want the students to suceed. I withdrew my student and i suggest you do the same. Everyday there is a fight at this school. There was one teacher that wouldnt give my child make up work after she was out sick and had an written dr. excuse. The teacher said she should have been in school and refused o give it to her. I went to DR. Binder and he did nothing. Just said he would take care of it.

The group of dedicated teachers and supportive administration is superior. The challenging academic programs offered at Greco cater to each student's needs. The involvment of the faculty at Greco is creating incredible citizens and leaders of our community. The students love their school and really feel like a family. The attractor academies within the school create a supportive and rigorous curriculum for students through an awkward stage in their development. The team work and balance of the teachers enable the students to thrive in a positive learning environment without burning them out for their future academic path.

I see a wonderful shell in the school. great teachers and programs. Just need to get the students to open their eyes a little and see how easy they have it. If they knew how tough life is outside ,maybe they would get their act together . A student that wants to learn will learn! no matter where.

my son went to this school a year ago. I have seen how the students act first hand. There needs to be MORE supervision.

I've already submitted one review, but here I go again. My son and daughter just started Greco and so far so good. The teachers have been very very helpful and havemade their transition to a new school as easy as possible, which can be difficult to do at this age, especially when there is only two months left in the school year.

Greco middle school was my former middle school. Now I'm a magnet student currently JEFFERSON HIGH SCHOOL.There ae so many great qualities to this school they're are exeptional teachers in this school and please don't judge them because of the error of one of my former teachers. BY THE WAY Mrs. Lafey was an exellent teacher thanks to her my fcat scores went from the level of a 5th grader to the level of a tenth grader in seventh grade.The school is ok inthe ares of the arts, music, but it really has no drama departmen which really doesn't do justice to the school.It doesn't have a culinary or home economic class this really can hold back gifted students. Overall the school is great you experince everyday problems and ways to solve them.Oh but of course you must know that I was part of student councel gov.and anyone can join it.

I attended Greco for my 6th, 7th and 8th grade years in the Gifted/Honors program. I loved the school and was extremely happy with my teachers and with my principal, Ms. Spence. Now, most people are going to say, 'Why would the opinion of a 9th grader matter?' Believe me, I knew what the school was like at the top of it's game. Since Ms. Spence left, I have been increasingly disappointed. An unbelievable amount of teachers left the school, and I can't say I'm impressed with the new ones. I think that until a better principal is chosen, Greco will never be the same welcoming and vibrant school it once was.

This school needs a little more supervision, with all these kids in the area all times I believe a little more supervision needs to be in place.

This is a great school. I have really great feedback from my daughter. The teachers really work hard to teach the students to the best of their abilities. Greco Middle School rewards children for their good grades, such as helping put teachers for a period instead of going to reading, or a 'wheel.' I reccomend this school to anyone.
