And you get a whole lot less in Madeira. As I have said, I grew up in Madeira. After graduating from UC and getting married, we bought a small 1160 sq. ft. 3 BR ranch in Madeira for $14,500 in 1965. The kitchen was so small you had to walk sideways to pass in it. I just looked it up today. Its market value on the tax rolls is $156,000, and the annual taxes $3,900 - rediculous.

We sold that sucker in 1976 for $40,500 (I was so happy some dummy paid that much for it) and bought our current 10 room, 5 BR, 2-story house in Mason on a 1 acre lot for $61,000. Over twice the house on 3 times the land, I was overjoyed.

My current annual taxes here in Mason are $2,400 or 61% of that bandbox in Madeira. So when you talk about getting what you pay for, yes but watch out you can be skinned.

Walnut Hills was not included in the cincy mag, only public school districts, and schools with two high schools in the district were not broken out, so for example, Turpin was not on my list because averaged with Anderson,since the are both in Forest Hills, and it was not in the top 5 overall.
Here is some new data, regarding National Merit Scholars, which was something you mentioned:

"Last month, Mason High School celebrated a record number of National Merit finalists – 19 – second in the region, behind Cincinnati’s Walnut Hills High School."
via http://news.cincinnati.com/article/2...ool-s-strategy

The article is about the enormous size of Mason HS, which is the biggest in the state. So on your per capita measure, Walnut Hills beats the poop out of Mason on this metric. Not sure where other schools sit.

I hope you guys realize it's pretty special to have an inner-city school that performs so well. Even though it's a magnet school, their admissions are not very strict and not capped.

Depends on the district, my Dad pays much less than we do. Dad lives in Reading. You might thinking of Cincinnati Public? I was talking about taxes to the school districts. Yes, per Dusty Rhodes, they are higher. This is because Clermont County voters vote down every thing in sight.
