Chong Boon Secondary School (CBSS/CBS) was a government-aided co-educational secondary school located in Ang Mo Kio. The school has merged into Yio Chu Kang Secondary School in 2018.

Chong Boon Secondary School started functioning in 1994 at the former site of Anderson Secondary School at Ang Mo Kio Street 44. It was a morning session school with 13 classes of 483 Secondary One students and 23 staff members. The following year, its enrolment increased to 772 students and the staff strength increased to 35.

The school became a double session school with 29 classes and 1022 students in 1996. To cope with the growing school population, new facilities such as computer laboratories were added to the premise. The old Chong Boon Secondary School was subsequently tore down in 2001 and the school moved to its new premise at 2 Ang Mo Kio Street 44 in 2002.

The school is home to a number of niche CCAs including A Capella Club and Cheerobics which clinched a gold medal in 2005. Chong Boon Secondary was the first school to be awarded the Niche Award in Environmental Education in 2009 for their exemplary green efforts. In 2010, the school also took in the Youth Olympic Games Torch Relay.

The Ministry of Education announced Chong Boon Secondary School as one of the schools to be affected by the merger programme. As a result, it merged into Yio Chu Kang Secondary School in 2018. The Principal was Mr Yeo Kuerk Heng.
