Significance: George Washington Junior High School is historically significant as one of the first two junior high schools constructed in the nation. The school helped change the organizational structure of schools throughout the United States. It is architecturally significant as an example of the Mediterranean Revival style as adapted to academic architecture in Tampa. An architectural style most intimately linked with the 1920s Florida Land Boom, the Mediterranean Revival style was adapted to many early Tampa schools built in the 1910s-1920s. Although often clad in the traditional red brick, these schools exhibit arches, shaped parapets, brackets, pendants, contrasting brickwork, and other details associated with the Mediterranean Revival style.
