History edit

In 1954, East Pakistan Government 'experimentally' established 4 Technical High Schools in Pakistan. Govt. Technical High School, Tejgaon was one of them. At that time, each and every responsibility was taken by the headmaster. In 1962, that school was turned into an intermediate college and the rank of headmaster was upgraded to principal. For that reason, the then-headmasterMr. Abdur Razzak was formed headmaster for 18 years. In 1991, the Government of Bangladesh started a double shift in 62 secondary schools. And Government Science High School was one of them. At that time it was named Govt. Science College Attached High School. But it was changed to just Government Science High School on 24 December 2019.[2] Those who served as the position of headteacher -

Everyone has to take part in daily assembly every day.[4]

From grades 1-3, the uniform is white shirts and navy blue shorts or full-length pants. From grades 4-10, the uniform is full-sleeve or half-sleeve white shirts and navy blue full-length pants. White school shoes are mandatory for each and every student. For all grades, the embroidered monogram which is given by the school must be attached to the left pocket of the shirt. Both shifts have their individual monogram. Morning shift's monogram has the title 'প্রভাতি' which means morning and Day shift's monogram has the title 'দিবা' which means day. The most essential thing for every student is their own individual ID card which is provided by the school every year.[4]
