About our District

On behalf of the students, staff, and 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). Schools and districts receive an overall rating and star ratings for five components. Out of 611 school districts, Madeira was one of only 8 districts in the state of Ohio to receive an overall rating of 5 stars on the most recent state report card, and the only district in Southwest Ohio that received five stars in all categories: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation, & Early Literacy. Also for the first time this year, the state gave districts an overall star rating in addition to rating them on separate categories. Madeira was one of only 75 districts across the state to receive an overall rating of 5 stars.  

To supplement the state report card, our annual Quality Profile (QP) highlights achievements in areas our community told us are important; Academics, Arts, Student Leadership & Activities, Fiscal Stewardship, Parent & Community Involvement, Student Services, and Staff & District Recognitions. It shows how our students constantly excel in ways that aren’t included in state tests, yet are ways that will help them succeed in life past Madeira. See all our Quality Profiles at The Rest of the Story

We also publish a yearly newsletter dedicated to our graduates. The District Digest showcases senior class awards, their future plans, their special Made in Madeira scholarship, and district end of the year awards. See District Digest for newsletters from 1999 to our most recent.

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.
