LAS CRUCES – A local school leader garnered national recognition for her work supporting charter schools in the community.

New America School-Las Cruces Superintendent and Principal Margarita Leza Porter received the 2022 Changemaker Award from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools — an annual award given to 10 people nationally for their work with charter schools.

“The accolades that I’ve received have just been wonderful,” Leza Porter said. “It just affirms that I do what I love, and I love what I do.”

Leza Porter said she is glad to represent Las Cruces and New Mexico with this award. She hopes that more parents will recognize the value of charter schools for certain learners.

I chose to come to the NAS because I needed to catch up on my credits. I graduate this year and if I had stayed at my other school that wouldn’t have happened.”


Santana Garcia

I have been attending NAS-LC for almost a year. It is great here. I love the teachers and the education I’m receiving. My favorite class is geometry.”


Araceli Zavala

I love my New America School (NAS-LC) because it has given me the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop new skills. Also it’s fun when I create projects for school. It’s even better when I have the schedule at night after work because it allows me to have time for both. The best part is that it helps me continue forward.”


Jose Mendez

I think the New America School-Las Cruces​ is great because it is opening up doors for me. I feel like I’m accomplishing a lot by coming here. The teachers are really great at assisting me in learning. Thanks NAS-LC for this opportunity.”


Paulette Duenez

The New America School-Las Cruces has given me a great opportunity and a second chance to become a better person in life. I am very thankful for this gift life has offered me. The fact that my dream of becoming a forensic scientist may become true is amazing. Thanks for this great opportunity.”


Doreen Johnson

This is my first year here. So far I am having a great experience at this school. It is very hard to find a school that will give you a second chance in life. The way New America School has it, you start off where you left off. Now I have the confidence and feel that I can be whatever I want to be. So if you know someone who wants to better educate themselves, send them to the new America school and they will succeed in life.”
