COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

At Maharishi School we believe that in-person schooling is the priority for the holistic health and development of our students. In-person education allows greater social-emotional experience with peers and teachers, more hands on learning, and more easily facilitated group projects. We will also offer online learning simultaneously for those families who need and choose that option. Learn More

From Maharishi School

At Maharishi School, the foundation of our college preparatory program is optimal alertness. You could have the most ideal school imaginable—best teachers, best facilities, best curriculum, and technology—but if students enter the classroom stressed, fatigued, or distracted, how much can be gained? What if there was a way to optimize students’ alertness? And what if a student could cultivate the ability to use more of their brain? Every aspect of school life would be enhanced: assimilating and retaining knowledge, social and emotional development, physical health and well-being. That is why at Maharishi School our students and teachers take time to transcend twice a day, with the practice of yoga and Transcendental Meditation. It dissolves stress and improves brain functioning.
