Dr. Ashley Deans, director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment documents the School's extraordinary achievements in his new book, A Record of Excellence: The Remarkable Success of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment.
Those achievements include grades 10-12 consistently scoring in the top one percent of the nation on standardized tests, graduating 10 times the national average in National Merit scholars, and winning global acclaim for the creativity and problem-solving ability of the students.
With amusing anecdotes, photographs, and cartoons, and backed up by extensive research, Dr. Deans lays out the compelling case for Consciousness-Based(SM) education as the solution to the problems in modern education. This book is the remarkable story about the first school in the world to offer Consciousness-Based education.
Unprecedented educational outcomes have made Maharishi School famous around the world. For example, since beginning the Odyssey of the Mind and Destination ImagiNation competitions, Maharishi School has won 41 state championships—more than any other school in the state—and has won the Global Finals of Destination ImagiNation three times, with more top-ten finishes than any other school in the world.
Since 1991 Maharishi School has won 17 state championships in tennis, including twice winning the 'Triple Crown' of singles, doubles, and team tennis in the same year. And in speech and drama, Maharishi School has won more top awards than any school in the history of the state.
In the past decade, students at Maharishi School, which has open enrollment, have won more than 100 state titles in science, speech, drama, writing, poetry, spelling, art, photography, history, mathematics, chess, tennis, golf, and track.
Judges, parents, teachers—and even fellow competitors—at all the competitions have the same response: 'What is it that makes them stand out?' This book gives a detailed and extremely readable answer to this question.
Dr. Deans describes how the remarkable success of Consciousness-Based education, brought to light over 30 years ago by His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, has its basis in the twice-daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. The result is the development of the total brain physiology of the student, leading to increased creativity, intelligence, and comprehension, as well as significant benefits for the students' health, and social behavior.
Some of the older students also participate in the group practice the TM-Sidhi program, including Yogic Flying, thereby creating an even more powerful effect of coherence in collective consciousness. Scientific research has confirmed the efficacy of these technologies in reducing conflict and violence in trouble spots around the world.
