As the northwest area of Tucson expanded, the need for an additional high school facility was recognized by the Amphitheater School District Board. The board began efforts to identify a site for a third high school in the late 1970s.
After considerable effort, the school board purchased two adjacent sites on the southeast corner of West Naranja Drive and North Shannon Road in April 1994. At that time the property was west of the Town of Oro Valley. As Oro Valley grew, the Ironwood Ridge High School site became part of the Town of Oro Valley.
