In May, a tiny school in Fairfield, Iowa, where all students, teachers and administration meditate, made history by sweeping 3 international and national awards:

1. A Maharishi School team competed against 8000 students from around the world in Destination Imagination, a creative problem-solving competition and finished in 1st place in their category and won the prestigious DaVinci award for outstanding creativity at the Global Finals competition

2. Its Student Rocketry team won $10,000 and 4th place in the national TARC – Team America Rocketry Challenge

3. Science Fair: A Maharishi School sophomore won the Iowa BioGenius Award and competed at the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles where he finished in 3rd place in the microbiology category out of 89 entries. His judges included a Nobel Laureate.

The school administration believes the success of their students lies in their unique education approach that incorporates a daily practice of meditation and yoga into their college-preparatory program for day and boarding students. The school uses the Transcendental Meditation® program for developing the student’s consciousness, deep thinking skills, and creativity. Research has validated this approach – showing better academic performance and increased intelligence among students.
