Middle School

"The Nature of Life is to Grow"

More than any other time in your student's career, Middle School is a time of change—a time of rapid growth and self-discovery. At Maharishi Middle School, your student will gain stability and a deep sense of Self through their twice daily practice of Transcendental Meditation®, a technique that provides deep rest as well as the experience of pure consciousness, the source of thought, the source of all creativity and intelligence.

This inner experience of lively creativity and stability allows our faculty to help your student easily develop study skills and explore academics, the arts—including speech and drama—and sports. When your young adult moves on to Upper School, he/she will be grounded, poised and self-confident, have developed his/her own interests, and will be ready for new challenges.
