Sekolah Menengah Sains Muar (English: Muar Science Secondary School; abbreviated SAMURA) is a full boarding public residential school (Sekolah Berasrama Penuh) in Tangkak (formerly part of Muar), Johor, Malaysia. It is the only government-funded school in the Tangkak district bearing the title Science School. In 2011, the school was awarded with the Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi or High Performance School[1] title, awarded to schools in Malaysia that have met stringent criteria including academic achievement, strength of alumni, international recognition, network and linkages, their performance in the recent 2017's Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examination is GPS of 1.71.[2]

History[edit]

The school was established on 31 May 1983 in Tanjung Agas, Muar, Johor, on a 42-acre (170,000 m2) site near the main road that connects the cities of Muar and Tangkak. 204 first-former students registered that day. In the following month, a second group of 421 students under the sponsorship of Malaysian Department of Civil Service registered to undergo TOEFL preparation course for overseas universities. A third group of students, consisting of 175 fourth-former students, registered on 1 September 1983.

The school used to not enroll first formers in the past. In 1988, it has only accepted fourth formers, except for a period from 1991 to 1994 when it received upper and lower sixth formers. Starting 2016, the school accepts first formers.

In 1992, the school achieved a 100% grade one result in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (Malaysian Certificate of Education). From 1995 until May 2000, the school has been chosen to provide a matriculation programme for Universiti Malaysia Sabah. Since then, the school has only fourth and fifth formers.

From 2005 until 2009, SAMURA achieved no. 1 ranks for SPM examinations in Johor school for four consecutive years, beating other SBP schools like Sekolah Tun Fatimah and Sekolah Menengah Sains Johor.

In 2016, after the redrawing of districts, SAMURA was classified as a school within the district of Tangkak and no longer under the administration of Muar district.
