A cover story in the May issue of Worth magazine on America's most effective non-traditional schools included Maharishi School as one of eight outstanding schools.

'During the course of our researching process, it became evident to us that an alternative education during the formative, pre-collegiate years is not only innovative, it can be highly successful,' said Editor-in-Chief Dwight Cass in a press release about the special issue. 'Accordingly, this feature article lists a selection of institutions that take a less traditional approach to building students' self-esteem, character, and discipline.'

The schools chosen for inclusion were those that offer a unique learning experience in addition to first-rate academics and that develop leadership skills, values, and wisdom.

The article talks about the students' practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique that results in clearer and more creative thinking. And it notes that the benefits are apparent in every measurable area of student performance, from test scores to athletics.
