During the Ming Dynasty, the Wang, Tsai, and Cheng families built houses in the area to farm the land. The area was thus named Sankuaicu (三塊厝; English: Three Houses). After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China, the area was renamed Sanmin to set a good example.[2]


The current population of Sanmin District is 358,081 people, consisting of 176,811 males and 181,270 females.[3]

"103年7月19日,高雄日僑學校正式向舊校舍道別,在這屋簷下歷經了無數次的歡樂始業式、也歡送了無數屆學生畢業,43年的春夏秋冬中學生們來來去去,唯有校舍見證了老師與同學們的歡笑與甘苦。向它道別,必然帶著不捨與惆悵心情,故在遷校前夕,畢業生、以前的家長及同學們,大家齊聚一堂,或撿拾校園中的落葉、或拿回自己名字的名牌、或拍下充滿回憶的校園一角,共同拾取點點滴滴的珍貴回憶。"
