Quezon City Science High School (also referred as QueSci or Kisay) is the Regional Science High School for the National Capital Region. It is the premier science high school of Quezon City, and is regarded as one of the prestigious sciences triumvirate of the Republic of the Philippines along with the Philippine Science High School and Manila Science High School. It is located at Bago-Bantay, Quezon City, Philippines. Founded in 1967, it was appointed as the Regional Science High School for the National Capital Region since 1998.

It holds the distinction as one of the national leaders in the field of Mathematics competitions, being among the country's most consistent schools in terms of its performance in the DepEd-sponsored MTAP contests the past decades. In 2004, it shot to international acclaim when a group of its student-researchers received the fourth Grand Award in the Intel International Science and Engineering fair held in Portland, Oregon.[2]

Recently switched books from private school books to the books given by DepEd due to complaints by some parents.


In 2013, a complaint affidavit was filed against Dr. Zenaida Sadsad. The affidavit includes the issues of: 1) accepting student applicants who did not actually meet the grade requirement of QCSHS. 2) openly endorsing Brainworks/Brainchamps Tutorial Learning Center to QCSHS student applicants, with the assurance of guaranteed admission slot in the school. The center boasts of 100% passing rate to the said science high school. 3) leaking out periodical test questions to said tutorial center. 4) threatening teachers who are spreading the issue of the test leakage with a libel suit and removal from service.[3] Dr. Sadsad was temporarily moved to another school on the months of January to March 2010.[4] She resumed office on April until her permanent transfer on September 30, 2013.[5]
