First Grade Comprehensive School was founded in January 1997 by the Proprietress, Hajia Rabi Hussaini Adamu Eshak.  It was a co-educational institution, founded out of the conviction that the public educational sector was in need of qualitative complimentary private sector support to ease the burden placed on it by a rapidly growing population with attendant slow growth in infrastructural expansion, limited access and lack of competition. At that time, the environment was in need of qualitative schools that will take care of the dynamic nature of education itself, as well as providing for the ever growing challenges and needs of young people in Kano and its environs.

The school commenced academic activities in January 1997 with a total of 50 students in playgroup, nursery, and primary classes, and 4 students in the secondary section.  By the second year, the playgroup, nursery, and primary section had grown to 200 students, while three arms of JSS1 and one arm of JSS2 were created to accommodate the student population. With the current  on going expansion the school target enrolment is expected to increase considerably thereby expanding access to the ever increasing population  with affordable and good quality education.
The foundation stone of the permanent site was commissioned by His Highness, Alhaji Ado Bayero in March 2003, while the completed structure was again commissioned by His Highness, in September of  2007. The school has grown from strength to strength with each passing year. After 15 years of existence, First grade is proud of what its consciously designed academic culture has produced so far. Graduands of the school are visible at both national and international institutions of higher learning.
