Chongqing Nankai Secondary School (simplified Chinese: 重庆南开中学; traditional Chinese: 重慶南開中學; pinyin: Chóngqìng Nánkāi Zhōngxúe) is a senior high school in Chongqing, China. It is located in Chenjiawan, Shapingba District. In a 2016 ranking of Chinese high schools that send students to study in American universities, Chongqing Nankai Secondary School ranked number 28 in mainland China in terms of the number of students entering top American universities.  
Chongqing Nankai Secondary School, founded in 1936 by the educationist Zhang Boling, is a secondary school supervised by the Chongqing Municipal Education committee. In 1953, it was taken over by the municipal government and renamed No.3 Middle School. In 1984, the wife of late Premier Zhou Enlai, who was also the vice-chairman of CPPCC, Deng Yingchao inscribed the school name.
The school campus covers an area of 362 mus (24 hectares). The campus has facilities such as science and computer laboratories, an astronomical observatory, a library, a school history museum, an indoor sports hall, a grand auditorium, an artistic centre(studios), two outdoor stadiums, an indoor swimming pool, student dorms and Business Street. The school’s library has over 150 thousand volumes.
Chongqing Nankai Secondary School has a teaching staff of about 200, including 90 senior teachers, 9 special-graded teachers and 9 research fellows. Over 105 young teachers have a master's degree or above. The school participates in academic exchanges and has established academic relations with schools in the United States and Japan. About 30 teachers have been sent abroad on lecture tours or for advanced studies. Teachers in the school have won national prizes for improvement in teaching method and some teachers were specially rewarded by the state council.
More than 20 graduates have become the deputies of People’s Congress and members of The Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in the school.
The school enrolment is over 6000, about 3000 of them living on campus. Every year about 99% of graduates enrol in colleges, among whom about 90% enter national universities. The number of students admitted by Peking University or Tsinghua University has been the highest among schools in Chongqing for years.
Celebrated scientists including some thirty academicians of the Chinese Academy of Science and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, educationalists, leaders of the CPC and the central government have graduated from the school in the past six decades.
The school has developed an education technology center, astronomical observatory, website and distance educational network.
In the summer of 1936, educator Zhang Boling, founder of Nankai High School in Tianjin, came to Chongqing and built a private school, Nanyu Middle School (南渝中学; literally South Chongqing Middle School). After the Marco Polo Bridge Incident, Nankai High School in Tianjin was heavily damaged by Japanese airraids. Many students and teachers fled to Chongqing, and joined Nanyu Middle School. In December 1938, Nanyu Middle School changed its name to Chongqing Private Nankai Middle School (重慶私立南开中学). After the founding of People’s Republic of China, its name is changed to Chongqing No.3 Middle school. In 1980s, Chongqing Nankai Secondary School has become its official name, yet in some unofficial occasions, the title "Chongqing No.3 Middle school" is still being used today.[when?]
The school previously owned significant assets in Nankai Cheng, but these were sold for commercial purposes in 1994. This gave the school a chance to heavily improve its campus environment. Now Chongqing Nankai Secondary school has another campus, called Naikai (Rongqiao) middle school, which is located at Fenglin Rd, Nan'an, Chongqing, China.
