Social Work

The Juarez Social Work team collaborates with teachers, counselors and outside agencies in order to support students' social and emotional challenges that are impacting their ability to learn and participate in the classroom. Social Workers focus on practicing and implementing therapeutic strategies with students in a confidential setting based on the student’s Individual needs in school.
