Maharishi School's comprehensive computer literacy program begins in Lower School and continues through Middle and Upper School. Each of the three schools has its own dedicated Computer Lab equipped with one to two dozen late model computers with Internet access running age-appropriate software programs with educational applications that span the entire curriculum from math and science to writing and desktop publishing to graphic art and design. Each classroom also is equipped with one or more computers for in-class use.

Students learn both Macintosh and PC platforms and gain familiarity with leading wordprocessing, spreadsheet, graphics, and communication programs inlcuding Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and Quark Express.

All Lower School students are enrolled in Computer Lab. In the Middle and Upper School, computer courses are electives, and students are expected to use computers to research and produce regular classroom assignments.

The School's computer resources are constantly monitored, maintained and upgraded by a full-time IT Administrator in consultation with the School's Technology Committee.
