Our school was founded in 1952 as Miaoli Municipal Chunan Junior Middle School. With an addition of the senior high school section in the following year, it was renamed " Miaoli Municipal Chunan Senior High School." In 1962, the senior section of 7 classes were affiliated to Taiwan Provincial Miaoli Senior High school, so it was then changed to "Chunan Section of Taiwan Provincial Miaoli Senior High School." During this period, the school built up its sound foundation in physical education. Great athletes like "Flying Antelope"--Zhn Ji, Lily Yao, Ah-mei Tian, Bee-yun Huang, and Zua-mei Zhuang studied here and graduated with flying colors. In 1968, as the compulsory education extended to 9 years, it regained its independence and then was named "Taiwan Provincial Chunan Senior High School." In 2000, because all the high schools in Taiwan were affliated to the Ministry of Education, it was renamed finally "National Chunan Senior High School." It is currently located at No. 98, Chung Cheng Road, west of Chunan Junior High School, in Chunan of Miaoli County.
The school is now situated in Chunan of Miaoli County, with 140 teachers and employees, and a total of 1, 767 students in 42 classes, including 36 general classes and 6 chemical engineering classes.
