Students at Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA continue to win awards for excellence in many areas including science, writing, and drama.

Dr Richard Beall, head of Maharishi School, recently summarized the inspiring accomplishments of the students and community.*

Like students of Consciousness-Based Education around the world, students at Maharishi School consistently achieve outstanding results, not only on standardized tests, but also in diverse athletic, artistic, and academic competitions.

This year students won championships in science, Destination ImagiNation, drama, robotics, and poetry.

The extended school community has also contributed to major grants and contests, resulting in a new Nature Explore Classroom and a host of new technology for classroom use.

Dr Beall also commented on the harmony existing within the diversity of the school's student body. The school's families originate from more than 30 countries, including Korea, China, Mexico, Russia, Ethiopia, and Germany.

Students feel that 'the world is my family', he said.

The school is establishing sister school relationships around the world and is expanding its boarding programme to accommodate more domestic and international students, Dr Beall reported.

In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to feature achievements of Maharishi School.

* Dr Richard Beall's report was featured on the 22 June 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
