Interested in learning more about a private boarding school in Iowa? Here are five questions and answers, that will introduce you to the world of Maharishi School!
- What will my child have to wear?
Private schools tend to have dress codes. Most are fairly simple, but some require clothing with the school logo. If the school your child is attending requires a specific logo or emblem on the clothing, they will direct you to the place you can purchase this article of clothing. For example, at Maharishi School, we go through Lands’ End for our school uniforms. We provide a special link to our uniforms.
2. Can I receive financial aid?

3. Will my child get the individual attention that they need?
Yes! Our teacher to student ratio is 1:5. This allows our teachers to make valuable connections with their students that last a lifetime.
4. If my child has a special skill, will they have time to advance in that area?
Our Project-Based Learning Period gives students 70 minutes to explore their passions threedays a week, whether in a teacher designed project or one they have proposed as an independent or small group project. They are exercising real-life skills in areas of interest, supported by teachers, community experts, and/or online resources. Project Period is another doorway to finding oneself.
5. What do you offer for stress management for my child?
At Maharishi School we invest in rest—of a special kind. Our students and teachers take time to transcend twice a day, with the practice of yoga and Transcendental Meditation. This allows them to gain deep rest and dissolve stress before it accumulates. It improves brain functioning. In a world of nearly incessant outer stimuli, it gives them a respite of inner silence, a connection with their own individual true self.
