Our Boarding Program has attracted students from all over the world, including Germany, Mexico, Nepal, China, India, and the USA. We are happy to provide our students the opportunity to live and learn in a low stress environment, at home and school. Living with Host Families carefully chosen from the Maharishi School community provides support and a safe nurturing home base for boarding students.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a key component in our Upper School curriculum. PBL is not a tri-fold display with pictures and text! PBL involves tackling authentic, real world, challenging problems that require new knowledge and skills. Students immerse themselves in creative critical thinking as they communicate and collaborate to deisgn and test solutions. These are the most essential 21st century skills for a world that is rapidly changing, and they go hand-in-hand with Consciousness-based Education. The more students are awake and coherent in their brain functioning, the more creativity and persistence they can apply to solving problems. The resulting produts are showcased in each student's portfolio, to demonstrate to potential universities and employers not just subject area knowledge, but the skills to actually create new, progressive solutions to the problems we confront in the world today.
