Sekolah Menengah Ibrahim
Motto : Finis Coronat Opus

Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Ibrahim or Ibrahim Secondary School (Ibrahim School) is a premier public secondary School in the town of Sungai Petani, in the northern Malaysian state of Kedah. The school is well-known for its excellent academic and co-curricular achievements, and has produced top scorers in the public examinations in Malaysia.

Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Ibrahim or Ibrahim Secondary School was started in August, 1919 by Mr. E.A.G Stuart, who was the Superintendent of Education of Kedah and Perlis of colonial British-Malaya. Initially, the school was named Government English School. When it was first established, the school was consisted of a longhouse with cemented floor and wooden walls, with three classrooms.

Before the school was opened, Mr. Stuart invited teachers from the Government English School (now known as Sultan Abdul Hamid College), Alor Setar to hold the position of School Principal of the newly formed school. Allahyarham Tuan Syed Jan was selected to be the first School Headmaster, and one Assistant Headmaster who was Encik Mohamed bin Suparman.

The students who first studied in this school were not large in number. Most of the students came from the Anglo Chinese school which was closed down. Student qualification of the school was different from other schools. The lowest standard was known as Class Primary. Students had to study two years in Class Primary which is known as Primary 1 and Primary 2 before advancing to Standard 1. Students who were more imbecile were allowed to advance to Standard 1 after only one year in Class Primary.

In the years 1921 and 1922, three more teachers were sent to provide service in the school because of the increasing number of students. The Government rented a shophouse in Jalan Petri to provide a better and larger area for the increasing number of students.

In year 1935, the school was moved again to Jalan Kolam Air , where is school is currently situated and renamed as Sultan Hamid School. The school was renamed again in the following year, 1936, as remembrance of Almarhum Yang Teramat Mulia Tengku Ibrahim Ibni Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah, the Regent of Sultan of Penang (1913 - 1914).
