George S. Middleton High School was originally established in 1934-35 for segregated Tampa, FL for Black residents. Its rival school in Hillsborough County is Howard Blake. The current facility opened in 2002 on North 22nd Street in the East Tampa section of Tampa. The school mascot is the Tiger. The school is named in honor of George S. Middleton, an African American businessman and civic leader, who moved to Tampa from South Carolina in the late 19th century.

Programs

The school offers magnet programs in Urban Teaching Academy, Biotechnology, Environmental Science/Marine Biology, Computer Systems Technology, Mathematics, Engineering, Digital Design, and Web Design

Another highlight of the school is its award-winning Robotics Team #1369.[1][2] The team was on the winning alliance at the FIRST Robotics Competition Peachtree Regional in Atlanta, and advanced to the national competition.

Middleton's Mu Alpha Theta team is one of the highest-ranked in the nation. In 2007, their team placed ninth in the FAMAT state convention, and seventh in the Mu Alpha Theta National Convention.

Rivalry

The school's rival high school is Howard W. Blake High School (Middleton and Blake were the two African-American high schools during segregation). The yearly football game, held at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, is highly anticipated.[3][4]

As of 2010, the Blake vs. Middleton game was held at Blake High School.
