Millennium was established in 1999 as a separate high school after serving for several years as "Agua Fria North", a campus for freshmen only.
In the late spring of 2011, covered parking with solar panel installations were added to Agua Fria and Millennium high schools; the district had previously added solar panels to the roofs at Desert Edge High School and Verrado High School in 2010. It is estimated that some 40 percent of the entire district's energy needs will come from solar panels at its high schools upon completion.
In 2014, the marching pride was ranked 9th place out of ten bands in Arizona. They were also selected to go to Hawaii to march in the Pearl Harbor memorial day parade, marking the 74th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor tragedy and the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. In 2015, the marching tiger pride was ranked 6th place out of ten bands in Arizona.
The Millennium FFA Chapter is an Estrella District chapter within the Arizona Association FFA under the National FFA Organization. Before the establishment of the Millennium FFA chapter, it was known as the Agua Fria FFA chapter before moving the program to Millennium High School in 1999.
In 2008 Millennium's Parliamentary Procedure team won the national championship in Indianapolis, Indiana at the National FFA Convention, making them the top ranked team in the nation for that year. In 2012, Millennium took six Career Development Event teams to the national convention, the most ever by a single chapter in the history of the Arizona FFA: Parliamentary Procedure; Conduct of Meetings; Forestry Managemen;, Agricultural Issues; Dairy Evaluation and Management; and Livestock Evaluation and Management. Each of the six teams received either a bronze or silver placing. In 2013, Millennium returned to the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, bringing two teams; Parliamentary Procedure and Agricultural Issues. Parliamentary Procedure earned a gold, placing as runner-up, and Agricultural Issues earned a silver medal, ranking them fifth in the nation. The chapter has produced multiple Arizona FFA state officers and candidates.
