Students at the Maharishi Secondary School in Uganda continuously demonstrate top academic performance and model behaviour, even though the school is not selective in accepting students.

Raja Graham de Freitas, Raja of Invincible Uganda for the Global Country of World Peace, recently presented a video about this school with comments from students, teachers, and administrators. (Please see Part I of this article.)*

In the video, one of the teachers comments that since students began the practice of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation Programme, 'we don't experience misbehaviours here and there'. She says, 'Meditation has for sure helped us.'

Academic performance has also improved because of the practice of Transcendental Meditation.

One student comments that after studying she feels fatigued. However, she says, 'after meditating, my mind becomes fresh, and I can pick [up] whatever they are teaching, and understand hard subjects like biology, chemistry, and physics.'

The school's science teacher adds, 'Our school has now increased in the level of academics, simply because of one thing—that's meditation.'

'Continuously, academic performance is better than even [at] the good schools which are taking only the ''cream'',' the school's Director, Dr Grant Lusimbo, says.

He compares the school to a hospital that takes patients other hospitals have deemed incurable. When other schools say, 'We cannot touch this one,' the Maharishi School happily accepts the student, because 'we have a method', Dr Lusimbo explains.

The school has doubled in size in just one year. 'In 2009 there were 30 happy, successful students. In 2010 there were 60 happy, successful students,' the video concludes.
