SAMS Academy Ground Up Construction

We’re getting ready to bring another school to life. Groundbreaking will be announced soon for the new Southwest Aeronautics, Mathematics, & Science Academy (SAMS Academy Charter School) serving 6th – 12th grades.  The new charter school, located at Ventana NW and Irving Blvd NW, Albuquerque, NM will be developed by Rachel Matthew Development.

It is a free, public STEM charter school for students in grades 6-12. Students will have a blended curriculum built around the aviation industry, college dual enrollment, and a hands-on STEM lab.

Rachel Matthew Development is a commercial builder and developer in New Mexico. The company has developed and built a number of charter schools in the state, as well as commercial offices, warehouses, and T and I improvements.

Our Philosophy

Our mission is to create a beautiful commercial building for each customer. We will build it right, on time, on budget and when we turn over the keys, we want to have a stronger relationship than when we broke ground.
