Admissions Process: Upper School
1. Visit Us (optional)
The best way to know whether you and Maharishi School are a great fit is to visit. You’ll want to meet our teachers, our administrators, spend time in the classrooms, and meet your peers.
Visits to the Maharishi Middle School are arranged by appointment. We request a two-week notice of all visits. Open Houses are also scheduled several times each year. Local students are invited to spend a day in their age-appropriate classroom and out of town students are invited to spend 2 days in their age-appropriate classroom. After a student visits and is accepted, Upper School students must defer enrollment until the start of the following semester.
To plan a visit, contact email@example.com or call (641) 472-9400 ext.5076.
