Over the past decade Maharishi School students have won more than seventy state, national and international titles in such diverse areas as science, speech, drama, writing, poetry, spelling, art, photography, history, mathematics, chess, Destination ImagiNation, tennis, golf, and track. In addition, they have demonstrated their desire to help others in society, for example by founding the student organization End School Violence Now and the Students Creating Peace Network.

With an open enrollment policy and a student body from a broad socioeconomic background, grades 9-12 consistently score in the 99th percentile on standardized tests year after year, and over the past five years the school has averaged about ten times the national average for National Merit Scholar Finalists. About 95% of our graduates are accepted at four-year colleges and universities.

Maharishi School now accepts boarding students.

Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment was founded to bring Consciousness-BasedSM education to children from preschool to 12th grade. Located on the campus of Maharishi University of Management, the School now serves as a model and inspiration for similar institutions around the world and a source of curricula and faculty training materials.

Traditionally, education has focused primarily on what the students study — the objective aspect of knowledge, the known. However, education has lacked a systematic means of developing the full value of the knower and the processes of knowing — thereby lacking the means to unfold the inner genius of every child.

Over 500 scientific studies have verified that the technologies used in Consciousness-Based education, including the Transcendental Meditation® and TM-Sidhi® programs, develop intelligence, creativity, alertness, moral reasoning, better health, reduced stress, increased happiness, and improved social behavior — thereby providing the basis for a successful educational program.

Consciousness-Based education helps develop the full potential of every student and teacher through their daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs, including Yogic Flying — easily learned, effortless techniques which promote ideal education through the development of consciousness.

Maharishi School invites educators, parents, and students to visit the School and to enjoy the experience of Consciousness-Based education. For more information regarding Consciousness-Based education visit the website at http://www.CBEprograms.org.

Beginning in 1979, the School saw a large increase in its enrollment. In 1983, the Upper School was founded to accommodate the growing numbers of older students, and in 1985 graduated its first senior class. The School has grown rapidly over the past few years to its present enrollment of over 300 students, preschool through 12th grade, with a faculty of more than 70 highly qualified teachers.
