On behalf of the students, staff and our Board of Education, we’d like to welcome you to the Madeira City School District. The accomplishments of our students at every grade level are the result of our highly qualified and talented faculty and staff, blended with the support and involvement of our parents and community. This unique combination makes Madeira a most desirable community in which to live and raise a family. 

Our students consistently achieve at a high level on the annual Ohio Department of Education (ODE) Local Report Card (LRC). In addition, we produce our Quality Profile (QP) every year. The QP provides our parents and community members a more detailed look at what our community values most in our schools and provides the 'rest of the story' in the areas of Academics, Arts, Student Leadership & Activities, Fiscal Stewardship, Parent & Community Involvement, Student Services, and Staff & District Recognitions. It goes beyond scores and state mandated testing. Our annual Quality Profiles can be found at The Rest of the Story

Our Board of Education guides our district by the principles that can be found at Madeira City Schools Goals.

In the 2016-2017 school year, the Madeira City School District received the following recognitions: 

US News & World Report’s Best High Schools issue awarded the top 6,041 public high schools with gold, silver and bronze medals, indicating their level of college readiness. The publication ranked Madeira High School #5 in Ohio, up from #6 last year. MHS was ranked #163 in the nation (242 last year) and #70 in STEM High Schools (187 last year).   

Cincy Magazine ranked Madeira High School #2 in its Best Schools issue. Also, for the second year in a row, Cincy Magazine named Madeira #1 of the 15 Top Communities in its 2017 “Rating the Burbs” article. The strong city school district was cited as one of the reasons.

• Madeira Middle School was recognized as a Blue Ribbon School by the United States Department of Education, joining previous recipients Madeira High School and Madeira Elementary School. The award honored elementary and secondary schools in the United States that made significant progress in closing achievement gaps, or whose students achieved at the highest levels in their state.

• Madeira’s optional, tuition based preschool was named a Five Star Program through Ohio’s quality rating and improvement system, Step Up To Quality (SUTQ). SUTQ is a five–star quality rating and improvement system administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services that recognizes and promotes learning and development programs that meet quality standards.

Cincinnati, OH

Cincinnati is the county seat of Hamilton County. Settled in 1788, the city is located north of the Ohio River at the Ohio-Kentucky border, near Indiana. The population within the city limits is 296,943 according to the 2010 census, making it Ohio's third-largest city. According to the 2010 Census Bureau estimate, the Cincinnati metropolitan area had a population of 2,130,151, the 27th most populous Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in the United States. Residents of Cincinnati are called Cincinnatians.

In the early 19th century, Cincinnati was the first American boomtown in the heart of the country to rival the larger coastal cities in size and wealth. As the first major inland city in the country, it is sometimes thought of as the first purely American city. Cincinnati is home to two major sports teams; the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals, a major tennis tournament, the Cincinnati Masters, and home to large events such as the Flying Pig Marathon, the Ohio Valley Jazz Festival, and the Thanksgiving Day race. The University of Cincinnati traces its foundation to the Medical College of Ohio, which was founded in 1819. Cincinnati is known for its large collection of historic architecture. Over-the-Rhine, a neighborhood just to the north of Downtown Cincinnati, boasts among the world's largest collections of Italianate architecture, rivaling similar neighborhoods in New York City, Vienna and Munich in size and scope. Constructed mainly between 1850-1900, Over-the-Rhine was the center of life for German immigrants for many years, and is one of the largest historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
