School Description:

Maharishi School is an innovative PS-12 college preparatory day and boarding school that pioneered Consciousness-Based Education (CBE), in which all students, teachers, and administrators practice the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program to dissolve stress and optimize brain functioning and learning. The school has a tradition of exceptional achievement in academic and extracurricular competition. In 2010 students won state championships in speech/drama, science, poetry, robotics, and Destination ImagiNation (DI). In 2011 five DI teams won at state and represented the school at Global Finals, where they earned 4th and 5th place recognition. The boys tennis team reached the Final Four for a record seventh consecutive year, and their coach was honored as National High School Coach of the Year in 2009. 

In addition to the college preparatory curriculum and honors courses, students study the Science of Creative Intelligence (SCI), a science of consciousness and the laws of nature that underlie the structure and functioning of every aspect of life. By relating their course material to these deeper universal principles, students develop a habit of higher order thinking. 

These unique CBE features—reduced stress through TM and deeper understanding through SCI—promote holistic development in our students as evidenced by the distinctive quality of life within the school. Now, hundreds of schools around the world have also implemented Consciousness-Based approach with similar positive results. Maharishi School is proud to serve as the flagship institution of this rapidly expanding innovation in education.
