"Students access their own internal power"

New Horizons School

Failing grades, truancy, and a high rate of adjudicated youth have made up the majority of New Horizons High School in New Haven, CT, for years. Dropout rates were high and many students were in jeopardy of re-entering the legal system - at least that was the situation in the past. New Horizons Principal, Maureen Branfield, had heard about the success of our Quiet Time Program and proposed a partnership. Nearly 75 students and staff have learned the Transcendental Meditation technique over the past six months. Principal Bransfield reports: “Introducing Quiet Time has given many of our students access into their own internal power thus helping them to make better decisions, not be so reactive, attend in a more productive

and focused way in school, and decrease their use of tobacco and marijuana.” Results of a comprehensive study are forthcoming.

Help the Foundation bring this transformational program to at-risk students nationwide. Thank You.
