JoAnn Mitchell
MAS Charter Schools Founder and Leader

Located in Albuqurque, Mission Achievement and Success (MAS) Charter Schools believes that all children regardless of race, economic status, or past educational experiences can succeed if they have access to a great education. MAS Charter Schools was founded by JoAnn Mitchell, who has spent her entire career serving at-risk public school students. In 2012, MAS Charter Schools launched its first campus in south Albuquerque, and the school quickly became one of the highest performing public schools in New Mexico. As a result of strong community demand – as evidenced by a waiting list exceeding 1,000 students – Excellent Schools New Mexico provided startup capital to help MAS Charter Schools launch its second campus on Albuquerque’s Southwest Mesa, on Old Coors Road. In its first year, MAS Charter School – Old Coors was a NMPED designated “Spotlight School”, ranking 2nd among all New Mexico schools in overall academic performance.
