Kowloon True Light School (KTLS, Chinese: 九龍真光中學) is a Protestant girls' secondary school situated in Kowloon Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China. It is supervised by The Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China.


On 16 June 1872, True Light School, a primary school, was founded in Guangzhou on the Chinese mainland by Harriet Newell Noyes, a missionary from the American Presbyterian Church. In 1917, the True Light Middle School was established in Guangzhou as a secondary section.

In 1949, due to the communist takeover of Guangzhou, the school transferred to Hong Kong. It was finally relocated to the current site in 1960, with an affiliated primary school and kindergarten opened on its original campus on Waterloo Road. In 1990, the basketball court was demolished, in order to build a new annex. In addition, a six-story new building was completed in 2006.

However, the girls who are now studying there, do not have the same attitude as the students at first. Most of the students there came from the primary section of Kowloon True Light School Primary section , the others come from the students who got bad results in maryknoll convent school primary section (can't enter the secondary section of this school). Most of their academic results are bad in maryknoll convent school ,like they got the C- grade or they repeat in that school.
