After a nationwide search, movie producers selected Greco Middle School to be featured in an upcoming documentary about "what's working right in education". Many schools across the country (including several schools in Hillsborough County) were considered, but Greco has been selected to represent Hillsborough County for its reform efforts to improve teaching. For this filming, Greco teachers will highlight the positive efforts of the district's Empowering Effective Teacher mentoring program.
Stay tuned to find out more about the documentary which is expected to air around Labor Day of 2013!
Greco Parents: Anytime filming occurs, movie producers film more than what they need so they will be here on our campus for the rest of the year filming. If your child's classroom will be specifically targeted, your student has already been given a media release form.
