Kowloon True Light School (KTLS, Traditional Chinese: 九龍真光中學) is a Protestant girls' secondary school situated in Kowloon Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is supervised by The Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China.
On 16 June 1872, True Light School, a primary school, was founded in Guangzhou by Miss Harriet Noyes, a missionary of American Presbyterian Church. In 1917, True Light Middle School was established in Guangzhou as a secondary section.
In 1949, due to the communist takeover of Guangzhou, the school was transferred to Hong Kong. It was finally settled at the recent site in 1960, with affiliated primary school and kindergarten opened on its original campus on the Waterloo Road. In 1990, the basketball court was demolished, in order to build a new annex. In addition, a six-story new building was completed in 2006.
