Lovely school, my children are very happy here! We love the diversity and the small class sizes. I have four children that attend from age 3-16, so we have experienced all education levels. I feel like they have really blossomed since switching from public school.

Maharishi School truly does unfold the creative potential of every student, as evidenced by the unique success in world championship creative problem solving competitions, performing arts, and innovative science fair projects. The students are focused on getting to a good university, but because of the stress reduction technique of Transcendental Meditation that they all practice , this is accomplished without the usual stress and strain. A truly innovative school that is pioneering the future of education today.
The teachers, staff, and administration are dedicated to creating an environment for learning, creativity, and leadership. My children enjoy their classes and love the friendships they have made at the school. The school focuses on academic excellence as well as the inner growth of each child.
