Parent/Student Resources

Madeira City School District is a school community where learning is personalized and success is ensured. Madeira City Schools recognizes that a student's emotional and mental health status may impact their ability to be successful in school.

Each school provides counseling services to help students with academic concerns, emotional issues, crisis intervention, conflict resolution, healthy decision-making, bullying and harassment prevention, and substance abuse prevention. If you have concerns about your child's academic, social-emotional and/or mental health, please do not hesitate to contact your school counselor.

Madeira City Schools & Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Partnership

The Madeira City School District is partnering with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) to provide Madeira families with children in Grades K-12 access to school based mental health services.

• CCHMC will provide independently licensed therapists to offer support for students during their school day. 

• These optional and confidential services will be offered in addition to those provided by school counselors and psychologists. 

• Families can cover the cost of therapy visits through private insurance, Medicaid or private pay options.

This partnership was facilitated by MindPeace, a non-profit organization with the mission to improve access to high quality mental health care for all children.  

If you are interested in this service for your child, please contact your child’s school counselor. For more information about this partnership contact Jessica Stevens, Director of Student Services, at 513.272.4140 or
