Situated in Nidige village in Shivamogga taluk, close to NH 206 and about 10 kms from Shivamogga city centre, the school is part of a suburban area which has a significant agrarian presence. Some major crops harvested here include paddy, millet, arecanut, coconut etc. The other residents of the village find employment in the Industrial and IT hubs nearby.
Initiated through efforts of K.S Eshwarappa, MLA, and Nidige village leaders N T Rangappa and Rudreshappa Gowda, Government High School, Nidige was sanctioned and started in June, 1996. The school started off as a primary school with 3 teachers and 4 class rooms and functioned till 2010 in the building where the Government Higher Primary school is currently located.. The student strength increased rapidly and in 2010 the new building was constructed on a sprawling 5 acres campus. This 2 storey building had 7 classrooms. Further enhancements added 1 more classroom and 1 washroom.
In 2020, a concrete approach road to the school was built with grant from the MLA funds. The school has been performing well consistently in the SSLC examinations from 2010 onwards.
