BROOKLYN - City officials hope to name a new high school after Nelson Mandela.

It will be located in the same building as the Boys and Girls High School in Bedford-Stuyvestant.

Mandela visited the school after he was released from prison in 1990.

The city’s Panel for Educational Policy will vote on naming the school on Dec. 11.

If approved, the Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice will welcome its first students next September.
