This school was founded by incorporating two schools during the Japanese rule of Taiwan. One was the First Girls’ Senior Middle School of Tainan County established in 1917. The other was the Second Girls’ Senior Middle School of Tainan County established in 1921 and renamed the Provincial Tainan First Girls’ Middle School after the restoration. In 1947, the school was renamed the Provincial Tainan Girls’ Middle School. In August 1970, the school was further renamed the Provincial Tainan Girls’ Senior High School, and finally in February 2000, given its present name, “National Tainan Girls’ Senior High School.” In 1971, A Complementary School on the Air was added to the school but terminated in 1975. In 1984, an Experimental Music Class was set up for musically gifted students, including both boys and girls. In1987, an Experimental Math and Science Class was set up for gifted students in these fields. In August 2003, a Bilingual Resource Class was established for gifted students in the related fields.
