The school was started in 1939 by a missionary, G.B. Youngberg, who was also the mission president for North Borneo. Named Sabah Training School, it operated until 1941 when it was forced to close because of the war. After the war, Peter Leopard and D. P. Siagian restarted the school in 1947. As student enrollment increased, dormitories, extensions to school buildings, and teachers' quarters were built. In 1959, a science lab and library were added with the present boys dorm in 1969 and girls' dorm in 1970.

In 1969, the name was changed from Sabah Training School to Sabah Adventist Secondary School (SASS). The old name was adopted by the elementary school. In 1999, following government regulations, the school was renamed Sekolah Menengah Advent Tamparuli (SMAT).

By 1968, SASS offered classes up to Form 5 with English as the medium of instruction. In 1976 however, following directives from the State Education Department, the medium of instruction was changed to Bahasa Malaysia although SASS continued to use English for subjects like Bible, Art, Science,Mathematics and English; and the school was well known for its strength in English. Currently it offers the national curriculum from Form 1 to 6 with pure science classes in Form 4 and 5.
