Gheorghe Tașcă studied at the cyrilic school of the Sfântul Nicolae church of Bălăbănești, and continued his studies in Bârlad, graduating in 1864. He started work as civil servant.

Fragment of Gheorghe Taşcă's will donating his property for the construction of the "Gheorghe and Maria Taşcă school" in Bălăbăneşti

The couple settled in Bălăbănești and he started his activity as tax collector and communal and county counselor. Gheorghe Tașcă died in Bălăbănești, Galați, Romania and bequeathed his property to the commune for the construction of a school. The school, constructed under the supervision of his son Gheorghe Tașcă, was inaugurated on September 15, 1935 and received the name of "Gheorghe and Maria Tașcă School".[1][2]

In 1948 the communist authorities eliminated Gheorghe and Maria Tașcă from the name of the school. The school's initial name was restored in 1994 and it became the coordinating gymnasial school of the area.[3]
