Located on the outskirt of the valley the school initially started near the historic Gangtey Goenpa. Few years later the school was relocated on the wide plain area popularly known as Tabeding to provide education to the students of Gangtey, Phobji, Bjena and Athang Gewog who lived as semi nomadic herders and migrated to warmer places of Wangduephodrang during winter and existed as Primary till 2010. With the recognition of Black-necked crane as endangered species, there was tremendous pressure from RSPN for relocation of the school as it falls within the roosting area of the black necked crane. The grant from JICA came as a boon and the construction was completed by 2010 and the school relocated as middle secondary school with complete new infrastructures. The school became a central school from 2016 academic session onwards.
