HeartMath research has identified a specific physiological state that underlies optimal learning and performance. In this state, our brain, nervous system, body, and emotions are in sync. This results in "cortical facilitation" which greatly improves our ability to perceive, feel, focus, learn, reason and perform at our very best.

HeartMath learning programs couple this knowledge along with the understanding that emotions drive attention, which is the key mechanism for learning and memory and make it possible for each student to perform and achieve at their highest possible level.

Our supplemental learning programs are easy-to-teach, and have been demonstrated to improve attitudes, behaviors, learning cycles and test scores. In our initial study, students who completed the TestEdge program showed a 35% improvement in math scores, and a 14% improvement in reading scores on the Minnesota Graduate Exit Exam. Based on these and similar results from other studies, the U.S. Department of Education awarded HeartMath $1,000,000 to conduct a rigorous study on standardized test score improvement on a national level. .

In the area of staff development The Resilient Educator Survival and Success in Today's Schools teaches staff how to stop the negative impact of stress, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Educators who have taken this program report that they feel much less likely to quit their jobs, while at the same time experiencing a 50% reduction in symptoms of stress. Based on these and other findings, the U.S. Department of Education has awarded the Institute $750,000 for a rigorous study designed to improve teacher retention and to reduce the number of students who drop out of school.
