“Our staff was taught the TM technique for the mental and physical health benefits that result in the work environment with the release of stress. In students, we have seen the TM program enhance study skills, academic performance, critical thinking skills, interpersonal and social skills—all because of the deep rest that the body is receiving.

“The way public and private schools are set up today, everything is stressful, and stress leads to violence. My experience using TM with teachers and students is that it relieves the stress and makes teaching and learning a lot easier. If students are required to take social studies, art, or physical education, why aren't students—and teachers—required to take the TM and Consciousness-Based program? It will make our schools much better, and it will reduce the deep stress that lead to school violence and all the other violence and terrorism in the world.”

“Imagine you are visiting a school where there are no locks on the lockers, and a five-dollar bill is pinned on a bulletin board with a note requesting that the owner claim it.

“You step into a ninth-grade classroom to be greeted by a sea of shining faces. The students are wide awake—eager to learn. You ask a question and every hand shoots up. The students giggle with anticipation.

“A teacher tells you she has more energy after a day's teaching than before. A parent confides that her children complain on Fridays that there is no school on the weekend.

"I warmly invite all families to come and experience Maharishi School in action. Interacting each day with students and teachers who are lively and enthusiastic, who work in a friendly and harmonious way - giving their full attention to each activity - fulfils my aspirations as both a teacher and a parent. At this school, learning ability, receptivity, intelligence and creativity all develop significantly, regardless of the student's background or gender.

This brings them to a very high level of both practical and values knowledge ensuring that all our children are treated with respect and kindness, at the same time given sufficient guidance by both example and understanding.
