In the early to mid-1990s, San Antonio, like many Sun Belt cities, experienced explosive growth in its suburbs. This growth was particularly evident in affluent areas formed by migrants to the city. In the area north of Route 1604 between the Blanco Road and US-281 corridors, known as Stone Oak and Sonterra, the growth caused severe overcrowding at nearby Winston Churchill High School – at the time the farthest-north school in the North East Independent School District – ultimately resulting in a student population of 3,500 at a school designed for not more than 2,500. The NEISD recognized this problem, and as a part of its 1997 bond issue, the district included an allocation to build a new high school in this area.
After voters approved the bond issue, construction commenced on the 84-acre (340,000 m2) campus. The property had been purchased prior to this bond issue from descendants of rancher William Classen. Spaw Glass was the general contractor of the project. The name "Ronald Reagan" was chosen by future students of the school (those currently in attendance at other North East schools) from a list selected by the NEISD Board of Trustees. A spirit committee selected the mascot "Rattlers" from three finalists and chose green, silver, and black as the school colors.
As construction was nearing its end, problems with the tiling in some classrooms led to the discovery of a previously unknown spring under the foundation of the building. This caused cracks and potentially long-lasting damage to the brand new school. Despite this discovery, which prevented the use of some classroom facilities well into the first year of the school's operation, Reagan opened to much fanfare in August 1999. Joe Hannon served as its first principal.
