ALS Education: Worthington High School/Quantum High School

School Social Work
Boynton Beach, Florida

Worthington and Quantum Charter High Schools are dropout prevention and recovery schools designed to help at-risk students graduate and move on to post-secondary success. The typical students are 16-22 years old with a history of failure in their traditional school setting, are significantly behind academically, have low basic skills, and are often facing personal/social obstacles that are impacting their success.  A core component of the school's model is the wrap-around social services. A designated clinical Social Worker oversees direct services, community partnerships, school-based initiatives, and clinical supervision of interns in order to provide a comprehensive support system for our students and their families.
