School District of  Philadelphia


Central East Region


Welcome to the Julia deBurgos School



Principal : Marilyn Carrion

Welcome to the Julia de Burgos web site. We are a large elementary school in the Kensington Section of Philadelphia. We have a state of the arts facility with two science labs and two computer labs.
We service 800 students from Pre-k to 8. Our population is 87 percent Hispanic, 11.8 percent African American, and 1.1 percent White. Due to overcrowded conditions in the Central East Region, a large percentage of our students come by bus from surrounding schools. We have 30 regular grade classrooms, 7 specialist teachers, 7 Special education teachers, a Counselor, a certified Librarian, 1 Assistant Principal, a Consultant and Education Mental Health Worker. We also have 8 Supportive Service Assistants who support instruction in classrooms. To support school climate and provide safe environment, we have 6 Noontime Assistants, 2 Non-teaching Assistants and 2 School Police Officers. Our educational experience is supported by the Beacon Family Center, which is partnered with us to provide a number of social services and after school programs for our students.
