Girls Preparatory Academy at Ferrell Middle Magnet School first opened as Middleton Middle School in 1993.  Middleton Middle Magnet School of Technology was one of the two original magnet programs offered by Hillsborough County Public Schools.  

In 2005, the district renamed the school and updated the theme to Ferrell Middle Magnet School of Center for Language Explorations and Global Communications. The following year the Advanced Course Scholars theme was added as a second theme.

Girls Preparatory Academy at Ferrell Middle Magnet School opened its doors during the 2011-2012 school year after the school district decided to create two single gender programs at the middle school level.  Since then, Girls Preparatory Academy has been successfully developing confident, dynamic, educated young women.
