            The impressive list of successes of Maharishi School students continues to grow each year. For the past 6 years, our students have scored in the 99th percentile in the Iowa Tests of Educational Development both nationally and in Iowa. To date 45 of our students have been recognized in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Our students consistently win top honors at national and state science and history fairs, academic competitions, art and speech competitions, and athletic events.


            In the past year alone our tennis team made Iowa tennis history by completing back-to-back Triple Crown sweeps, winning the singles, doubles, and team boys’ state tennis titles in two consecutive seasons. Our basketball team finished the season with a record of 23-2, and was ranked 5th in the state in class 2A after winning their conference and district championship.


            Our Upper School speech students won the All-State banner for Choral Reading at the Iowa High School Speech Association Large Group Competition for the third year in a row. Maharishi School has won more Critics Choice awards in the past decade than any other school in the state.


            Maharishi School students won first place awards at both the state science fair and the state history fair. In Destination Imagination, teams from the School not only won three championships at state but went on to finish second, fourth, and eighth in the Global finals.


            The first place in both the team and individual competitions at the Regional Math Counts Competition was won by Maharishi School students. Several Maharishi School students won state awards for photography, poetry, and art.


            These are a few of the highlights of our students’ achievements over the past year. These students are shining examples of Maharishi’s Consciousness-BasedSM Education. They deserve the very best. Please give generously to Maharishi School’s Spring 2001 Annual Fund Campaign.





            “Everyone who loves knowledge knows what an inspiration it is to be in the company of the wise, where every expression shines with the light of knowledge. In the past this opportunity was scarce, and was available only in the presence of highly educated and experienced scholars. The time has now come to have this joy even in the company of the young with the growth of higher states of consciousness. Enlightenment is now going to be a common feature of the youth of the Age of Enlightenment in every country.”
