The ONLY downside to living in Sierra Madre is that its schools are affiliated with the mediocre Pasadena USD instead of the much better Arcadia USD. Otherwise, it's a wonderful place in every way.
Sierra Madre is "Bedford Falls Meets Berkeley." We've got yuppies and hippies, grandmas and babies, hipsters and college kids. The fact that our independent coffee house, Beantown, gets more traffic than the local Starbucks, says a lot for our town's ethos. We love it.
Sierra Madre can be described as an exceptional community with a high degree of volunteerism, Little League, Swim Center, Playhouse, Youth Activity Center, Kersting Court, Farmers' Market on Weds. Rotary Club, Kiwanis, Civic Club, Volunteer Fire Department, Low Crime, Community Services, Active City Council, Search and Rescue, Historical Society, Friends of the Arts and Library. The Rural / Foothills natural beauty with trails and numberous park and recreation facilities are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. This is a very good place to raise kids, enjoy pets, and go for a jog, walk or bike riding. Public school system and SME School is ranked excellent. 8 Public and Private Schools, several churches, many restaurants, shops and local merchants and an active Chamber of Commerce with 140+ members complete the social landscape. This is a very friendly and integrated community with multiple generations often returning the the area where they were born and raised.
