In retrospect, Tuan Mong High School could be the predecessor of Ngee Ann Secondary School. In 1906, leaders of the Teochew community set up Tuan Mong School to provide basic education for Teochew descendants. The management of the school was later entrusted to The Ngee Ann Kongsi in 1953. Thereafter, the school started to provide secondary education in 1955 and was renamed Tuan Mong High School. However, by the 1980s, the success of new towns resettlement program led to a sharp decline in enrolment. Inevitably, Tung Mong High School ceased operation in 1994.
Seeing the demand for schools in the new estates, The Ngee Ann Kongsi established Ngee Ann Secondary School in Tampines in 1996. Over the years, the school had excelled and maintained outstanding performance in its academic and co-curricular spheres. It was accorded Autonomous School status from 2004.
Although The Ngee Ann Kongsi does not manage the functions of the school, it provides Ngee Ann Secondary School with up-to-date facilities and technologies to meet the demands of the 21st century. To date, Ngee Ann Secondary School is still among the top percentile of schools in Singapore.
