The early history of this school began on 5th January 1973 with
the names Sekolah Menengah Sains Melaka.This also marked the enrolment
of 120 pioneer students comprising 80 male and 40 female students. They
were placed temporarily in Sekolah Menengah Munshi Abdullah while waiting
for the completion of the school building in Air Keroh. Due to the dealy
in the completion, the students had to be transferred to Sekolah Menengah
Sains Johor in Kluang the following year.
On 3rd January, 1976, about 120 more students of Form 1 were again placed
in Sekolah Menengah Munshi Abdullah, Batu Berendam. However, they managed
to be placed in the school in Air Keroh when it was completed on 8th May,
1976. On 10th May 1976, the school received 160 students to commence their
Form Four Education.
Encik Yahya Bin Mayah was elected as the first Principal and Tuan Hj. Sairi
Hj Tahir as the Vice Principal. Both of them were transferred from Sekolah
Menengah Munshi Abdullah to this school on 1st May 1976.
The name Sekolah Menengah Sains Muzaffar Syah Melaka' is quite a mouthful.
So, we call our school 'MOZAC'.
