Sekolah Menengah Sains Rembau, Negeri Sembilan (SEMESRA) was established on 1st October 2009. On the 5th of January 2010, the first Principal, Dato' Haji Azam bin Md Atan registered for duty as the Super Principal of SEMESRA. The institution's first intake of students was on 16th November 2009 when 130 Form One students registered.

Now, the school caters to more than 800 students. As one of the elite residential schools in Malaysia, one of SEMESRA's main purposes is to produce future leaders with first-class mind and multi-talented skills. To ensure that this mission is achieved, there are more than 70 well-experienced and skillful teachers teaching in SEMESRA.

Being a green horn among the well-established schools in Malaysia has not stopped SEMESRA from achieveing success in both the curricular and co-curricular fields. Each success has been the result of cooperation, teamwork, effort and perseverance from the teachers and students.

After Dato' Haji Azam officially retired on April 2011, the successor, Puan Norzila Idris took realm as the new Principal. She was the perfect fit to continue the task of thrusting SEMESRA into a greater level, which was evident by the many changes that had been brought forth upon her taking office.

The first batch sitting for SPM successfully graduated in 2011, charting the history of the institution for producing the first SPM result after the school officially commenced in two years since 2010. SEMESRA had also put itself on par with the other prestigious residential schools when it came in 7th place in its first SPM result, hence making it an institution to be reckoned with.
