Founded in 1910, the City of Madeira was originally constructed near the railroad line running between Cincinnati and Parkersburg, West Virginia. Over the years, the City of Madeira has maintained a small-town feel with a variety of housing options for residents.
Located about 12 miles northeast of Downtown Cincinnati, Madeira offers a bustling business community despite the fact that more than 90% of the land area is zoned residential. Convenient access to I-71 and Montgomery Road (U.S. 22) makes other areas of Greater Cincinnati easily accessible to residents.
The City of Madeira is located roughly 15 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati. With a population of nearly 9,000, the City of Madeira is an energetic community with a lot to offer new residents. In fact, the area was named “#1 ‘Burb in Greater Cincinnati” for 2016-2017 by Cincy Magazine for the fifth time in eight years.
Located in and around the Miami, Euclid, Laurel, and Camargo Road areas, the business district features a variety of shops, restaurants, and services, which are walkable for most residents. In addition, a second business district is located near the intersection of Montgomery and Hosbrook Road. This area also features several shopping and dining opportunities to enjoy.
In addition, the City of Madeira is positioned near the Village of Indian Hill, Mariemont, Kenwood, Blue Ash, and Montgomery, providing residents with access to countless entertainment options, including shopping centers, casual and fine dining, movie theaters, recreational facilities, and more.
Parks and Recreation
The City of Madeira is home to three beautiful parks: Sellman Park, McDonald Commons Park, and Nelle V. Hosbrook Bird Sanctuary. Each park has a unique personality. At Sellman Park and McDonald Commons Park, residents will find baseball and softball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts, playground equipment, picnic shelters, and more. While Nelle V. Hosbrook Bird Sanctuary features two acres of wooded area with a walking trail and picnic benches.
Throughout the year the City of Madeira hosts a number of activities and seasonal events. Past events have included an Easter Egg Scramble, Memorial Day March, Independence Day Parade, Splash Party, St. Nicholas Sleigh Ride, and more.
Things to consider: Madeira
Per the Ohio Department of Education website, Ohio School Report Cards give each community a clear picture of the progress of the district and schools in raising achievement and preparing students for the future. Ohio School Report Cards data shows educators, school administrators and families where their schools are succeeding as well as areas where they need to improve. Schools and districts report information for the Ohio School Report Cards on specific marks of performance - called measures- within six broad components - Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success. The Department gives letter grades on each of the six components and most of the individual measures. For the purposes of this summary, the letter grade for "Achievement" is shown. You are encouraged to review the Ohio School Report Cards in detail (see Ohio Department of Education website). The "Achievement" grade for the Madeira City School District reported on the 2016- 2017 Report Card was a "A".
