Originally a junior high school named Aomori Prefectural Third Junior High School (青森県立第三中学校, Aomori Kenritsu Daisan Chūgakkō), the school was established on September 11, 1900.[1]

Aomori Prefectural First Junior High School in Hirosaki and Aomori Prefectural Second Junior High School in Hachinohe were later renamed Aomori Prefectural Hirosaki High School and Aomori Prefectural Hachinohe High School respectively. Aomori Prefectural Third Junior High School in the city of Aomori was also renamed Aomori Prefectural Aomori High School.

The school later moved to the site of the former military camp where the 2nd Battalion, 5th Infantry Regiment involved in the Hakkōda Mountains incident was based. In the 1902 accident, 199 out of 210 soldiers on winter training exercises perished.[2]

In 2000, one of the school's chairmen embezzled 34 million yen from the school's 100th anniversary funds.[3]
