The Sotomayor Wildcats will soon be tearing up the courts, according to a Facebook post. 

The forthcoming school is slated to officially welcome Northside students in August 2022. It will become the 12th school in NISD.

Sotomayor high school, located near Government Canyon at 12801 Tall Timber Lane, is anticipated to relieve overflow from Harlan, which opened in 2017, and O’Connor high schools.

The district’s decision to name the school after Sotomayor was made in October 2020. NISD has a policy of naming campuses after Supreme Court Justices, according to earlier MySA reporting. District Spokesman Barry Perez told MySA that the board of trustees also considered naming the school after late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

Justice Sonia Sotomayor is the first Hispanic and third woman — after O’Connor and Ginsburg — to serve on the nation’s highest court.
