FGIS is recognized as one of the most outstanding schools in the Upper East Region of Ghana and Ghana as a whole.

Founded on Tuesday, September 7, 1999 under the visionary leadership of Rev. Eastwood and Rosemond Anaba, FGIS was established to meet a felt need for a high quality, carefully structured and above all Christ centered foundation in education in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

The school, situated off the Bolgatanga Library Road, had a good start with 107 children in 4 classes; Kindergarten1, 2, and Grades1and 2 under the able leadership of Mrs. Dorothy Akubah –Apidogo and her assistant Mr. Samuel Arthur from 1999 to 2008.

These were professional teachers who worked tirelessly with 4 other teachers and raised FGIS to an enviable position. Under the current administration, Ms Helen Adongo has been Head teacher (Pre-school and Primary) since September 2008.

One grade was added each year until the school reached the 7th grade
(Junior High School).
