Principal Julio is passionate about ICS-West’s mission of educating global citizens in urban communities and is excited to replicate the school culture and the opportunities offered by ICS at our new school in Southwest Philadelphia.  
Principal Julio is committed to building a school community that fosters curiosity, respect, and learning for all; one that engages families as well as a broader community of stakeholders. He is authentic, compassionate, skilled, thoughtful, and determined.
Principal Julio has a background in Urban Education, Special Education, and Bilingual/ESL education, including a graduate certificate in Educational Leadership from Harvard. He comes to us from Julia de Burgos Elementary School, where he is currently Assistant Principal.
Principal Julio came to the US as a child and is the first in his family to attend college. He is also a regular contributor to The Notebook and an avid runner.
We extend a very warm welcome to Principal Julio.
