Juying Secondary School (Abbreviation: JYSS) is a government co-educational neighbourhood secondary school in Jurong West, Singapore. The school was established in December 1995.

History[edit]

Juying Secondary School was founded in 1995 with the appointment of Mrs Lee Yin Ling as its pioneer principal. The school started with 10 classes of Secondary One pupils which were housed on the 4th level of Pioneer Secondary School, our holding school, for six months while the former Jurong Institute was being retrofitted to become Juying's permanent premises.

When the school moved into its permanent premises on 12 June 1995, only three quarters of the retrofitting had been completed. The following two and a half years saw the continual upgrading and improvement of facilities. In June 1997, an extension project was started to enable the school to become single session in the year 2000.

The school was officially opened by Mr Peter Chen, Senior Minister of State for Education and MP for Hong Kah GRC, on 18 July 1997.

Today, the school has a total enrolment of approximately 900 pupils in 25 classes covering Secondary 1 to Secondary 5. The school premises were upgraded under the Programme for Rebuilding and Improving Existing Schools (PRIME) from 2010 to 2012.

The upgraded premises include new facilities such as 2 dance studios, a sunken plaza for outdoor performances, a synthetic field, a gymnasium, a bigger multi-purpose hall, an indoor sports hall, a rock climbing wall for outdoor education, a repelling wall[clarification needed] for high elements confidence training, a health & fitness area, a specialised iMac studio, multiple computer laboratories, dedicated counselling rooms and an afterschool recreation room.

Principals : Mr Seet Tiat Hee (2012-Present), Mr Abdul Harris (2004-2012), Ms Grace Ng (1999-2004), Mrs Lee Yin Ling (1995-1999)
