Caloocan City Science High School (CCSHS or CalSci), is a public secondary science school in Caloocan City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
Caloocan City Science High School stands behind the Division Office along 10th. Avenue Caloocan City corner P. Sevilla Street in Grace Park. The school came into existence through the efforts of Dr. Victoria Q. Fuentes, the Schools Division Superintendent then the benevolence of the City Mayor, the Honorable City Mayor Reynaldo O. Malonzo, who saw the need for a Science High School that would cater to the poor but talented students of the city.
