Social Worker

WHY do today’s schools need School Social Workers?

More and more schools in the US are adding Social Workers to their schools.  We know that our students are unable to learn when their physical, social and emotional needs are not being met.

​WHO are School Social Workers?

School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals with a degree in social work who provide the link between the home, school and community in providing direct as well as indirect services to students, families and school personnel to promote and support students’ academic and social success.
