Grateful for the continued support and advocacy provided by CER

"New Mexico is a state in great need of outstanding schools and Mission Achievement and Success Charter (MAS) School serves as a proof point of what great schools can do for students, but we have found that in our seven years of operation we have been in frequent unsolicited fights through union attacks, harmful legislation, and ill-intended myths around charter school education. Engaging in these fights becomes necessary for our survival, but also tax resources to include time, money, and talent in our engagement of these battles. MAS has come to rely on the support of CER and we are grateful that each time we have called upon them, CER has responded and supported us to ultimately prevail in hurdles that seemed insurable and threatened our existence. MAS is an "A" rated charter school in New Mexico, one of only 14% of schools in the State to earn this rating and one of the only schools in the state to earn this rating serving a high need population like the one we serve. We are grateful for the continued support and advocacy provided by the CER and frequently contemplate how successful we would have been in overcoming hurdles without their support. We appreciate and need them, and MAS Charter School as well as other charter schools around the country require their continued support to successfully challenge the status quo and prove that great schools can and do exist."
