Yio Chu Kang Secondary School is a co-educational government school in Ang Mo Kio, Singapore. It was first opened in 1966, and moved to its current site in 1982. It has been merged with Chong Boon Secondary School since January 2018.

History[edit]

Yio Chu Kang Secondary began operations in 1966, and was set up in response to a request by residents of the Yio Chu Kang area to the then-Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew for a secondary school.[1] It was initially located at the tenth milestone of Yio Chu Kang Road, housed in a S$444,000 campus.[2] In 1982, the school moved to new premises along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 and the new premises were officially opened on 26 August 1983 by MP for Yio Chu Kang Lau Ping Sum.[3]
