Sekolah Menengah Sains Kuala Selangor (English: Kuala Selangor Science Secondary School; abbreviated KUSESS) is a boarding school, also known as Sekolah Berasrama Penuh (SBP) in Malaysia. The school was built under the Sixth Malaysia Plan. The school is located in Bandar Melawati, Kuala Selangor which is about 70 kilometres from the nation's capital, Kuala Lumpur. Construction works on the school began on 24 April 1994 and were completed in 1996.

The school started operating on 8 September 1996, with a first intake of 210 students, 19 teaching staff and 4 support staff. The following year saw a sharp increase in the number of students that were admitted to the school. 187 students gained entry to Form 1 while 165 students were admitted into Form 4. The teaching staff almost tripled from 19 to 53. On 27 May 1997 the school was officiated by the then Deputy Prime Minister-Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

By 1998, the number of students had grown to 810 and the teaching staff had a strength of 63 people. The year also saw the retirement of the school's first principal Tuan Haji Khamis bin Maarof. He was replaced by Tuan Haji Ariffin bin Abdul Rahaman, who left his post at Sekolah Menengah Kadok, Kota Bahru, Kelantan to take the seat as the principal. It was also the year which saw the students of the school sit for Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) and Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations for the first time. The results were an overwhelming success as for PMR the school was ranked as one of the top 5 Sekolah Berasrama Penuhs (SBP), while in SPM 147 students out of 148 students obtained first rank.

Today the school has 783 students in 25 classes, taught by 75 teachers.

The school stages an assembly every weekday morning in which prayers are recited and the National anthem (Negaraku), the Selangor State song and the school songs are sung.
