Maharishi School | Where I can be Myself

Welcome to Maharishi School

Maharishi School is a secular Prep - Year 6 Primary School and member of the Independent School sector in Victoria since 1997. We are a culturally-diverse school with our students representing more than 12 cultural origins from around the world.

The school offers the AusVELS /Victorian Curriculum, enhanced with an approach to learning that integrates the principles of Consciousness-Based Education and Transcendental Meditation.

Maharishi School takes pride in its ability to provide an environment for its students that values the benefits that come with nurturing young people’s individuality and personal traits rather than “moulding” or making them conform to someone they’re not.

Our school community understands and appreciates the benefits that come with having children attend a small and nurturing school. Our class sizes are in the 15-20 range, reflecting the importance we place on knowing each other well, in a way that enables us to respect and appreciate the individuality of each other. Multi-aged learning groups transcend the rigid social and educational separation of students into single ages and year levels. Our learning environment fosters a warm and supportive relationship between students and their teachers which continues throughout their primary school years.

Maharishi School’s small size and integrated structure enables it to function as a community in which teachers, students and parents understand and care about each other. A supportive community is acknowledged as the best environment for educational success and social development.

Our school values the creativity, inquiry and excitement that young children bring with them to school. We nurture this, ensuring individuality is valued and embraced within a learning environment that optimises each child’s personal growth and development. Consciousness-Based programs provide practical means to fulfil these values, so that students experience and develop the full range of their own creativity and intelligence. The whole human being is educated in a balanced and integrated way: intellectually, creatively, socially, emotionally and ethically.

This is a school where your child will never be just another face in the crowd.
