Maharishi School in Iowa to Accept
Boarding Students Starting in August 2002
"The development of the total brain
potential of every student must be the top priority for every parent and
educator today. The unprecedented achievements of Maharishi School
students in all areas of life—academics, the arts, sports, and social
behavior—is living proof that Consciousness -Based education unfolds the
inner genius of every child. Now, this ideal system of learning will be
available at our campus to boarding students."
--Dr. Ashley Deans, Director, Maharishi School
This August, Maharishi School in
Fairfield, Iowa is starting a Boarding School for grades 9-12 and is now
School Director Dr. Ashley Deans says, "This is a wonderful development
for our school and an important step to achieve our goal of bringing
enlightened education to America and the world. Our
Consciousness-Based education provides the missing elements in
education today. The School’s extraordinary success speaks for itself."
Indeed, Maharishi School has won more than 95 state championships in the
sciences, arts and athletics in the past decade. Recently, The Ottumwa
Courier ran a front-page story in its Sports section saying, “In Iowa
prep tennis, MSAE [Maharishi School] Pioneers are without a doubt a true
dynasty.” This was in reference to the 17 class 1-A state tennis titles
that Maharishi School has won since 1991, more than any other school in
the state for the same time period.
Maharishi School --True Dynasty in Many
Maharishi Upper and
Middle School’s have also captured more first-place awards at state
science fairs than any school in the state in past 15 years. They have
won more ‘Critics Choice Awards’(nine) at All-State Speech Competitions
than any other school in the past nine years. They have won more Grand
Prizes in the State’s Congressional Art Competitions, “An Artistic
Discovery,” than any other school in the state in recent years.
Maharishi School has also created a dynasty in photography, winning 16
first place awards in color and black and white since 1998 at the Iowa
Educational Media Association State Photography Contest and many grand
prizes internationally. And, they have won more Destination ImagiNation
(DI) First-Place in State Awards (12) than other any school in Iowa, and
they have placed more teams (9) in the top 10 at the DI World Finals
than any other school in the world.
But, what’s even more astonishing is that this is just the tip of
Maharishi School’s achievements. Grades 10-12 consistently score in the
top 1% on standardized achievement tests, both in Iowa and the nation,
and the School has produced 12 National Merit Scholars in the past six
years. "The achievements of our students—in so many areas year after
year—is a by-product of our Consciousness-Based education," says Dr.
Deans. "All the students practice Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation
technique, and the older students also practice the advanced TM-Sidhi
program, including Yogic Flying. These and other ‘Vedic technologies of
consciousness’ prepare our students for greater success by increasing
EEG coherence in brain functioning and by rejuvenating the whole
physiology," says Dr. Deans.
Simple Formula for Success
14-year-old son, Donny, was doing his asanas more diligently than us,
and begging us to take him to the vaidya to find out exactly what
he should eat. He continues to go to bed before 9 p.m. of his own
accord. He said, "It makes me feel good." Our relationship with Donny
has never been better. We are extremely grateful to the Maharishi School
and to this community. We love his friends and their families--all of
them very respectable people. His teachers have inspired and stretched
him. His life has been full of challenges he has been able to meet. He
is clear about his "secret formula" for success: stay on the program.
Most of all we are grateful for the support he gets from his fellow
students at Maharishi School and from the Maharishi University student
coaches who have really inspired him for all-around personal excellence.
They are ideal role models. This could not have happened in any other

Praise from Educators
Bassett, president of the National Association of Independent Schools in
Washington, D.C., commented: "Maharishi School is routinely recognized
as outstanding in Iowa, since its students frequently take top prizes in
statewide academic competitions. It is an independent school of the
highest caliber academically."
