Under the guidance of Goh Tong Pak, Xinmin High School’s curriculum changed between 1992 and 1997, including tighter restrictions and the development of an inclusive culture.

The Ministry of Education granted the autonomous status in 2001 in honour of its sustained achievement in holistic education. From January 2003 to December 2004, Xinmin High School relocated to a holding site on Sengkang West Avenue to refurbish its Hougang campus.
