What does 'peace' mean to high school kids? The article offers five examples from new students at Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. Here's one student's story:

Peaceful identity

Sophomore Isabel Reed's family researched alternative schools:

''I was looking for a new school, because I felt like my old school was really holding me back. People weren't always kind, and there was peer pressure to be someone that you weren't. I couldn't understand why people would do unethical things. I couldn't be at peace with that so I wanted a change.

''I wanted to be in a caring place, where teachers and students care about learning and care about each other and want to be good people. The first thing I saw at Maharishi School was a sign on my locker that said, 'Welcome Isabel.' Hifza, the girl who has the locker next to mine, did everything she could to befriend me and make me feel welcome.

''With the meditation I'm less irritable with my family. Now I take it as it comes, and I'm able to stay calm. I've learned that I don't have to let small problems upset me. I feel refreshed here, more peaceful inside and at peace with the whole environment.'
