About us

Inspired by the words of Kaniyan Poongundranar “யாதும் ஊரே யாவரும் கேளிர்” (To us all towns are one, all men our kin) tamilians are always spreading  wings in all corners of the world. Wherever we go we carry our precious language, culture and tradition with us. Tamil is one of the ancient and longest surviving classical languages in the world and tamil literature has existed for over 2000 years. We take pride in that and are taking every possible effort to take this forward.

Tamil School of Missouri was founded 11 years ago with few students and has grown rapidly ever since and has 120 students registered this year. We are currently affiliated to the ATA (American Tamil Academy) and follow a curriculum devised by them for grades Mazhalai to Nilai 5. The school is run by a team of 40 dedicated teachers and technical volunteers who work  hard for this noble cause. 

Curriculum is designed based on our culture as well the known activities, festivals and games in America.

Every year we conduct Tamil Bee Competitions and distribute prizes. The kids will be quizzed on Tirukural, Tamil speaking, singing, writing and comprehension etc.,



To systematically teach the language of Tamil, one of the oldest and most widely spoken classical languages in the world, to students aged four and above residing in the state of Missouri. 


Our vision is to encourage an enduring interest in Tamil language, literature and culture among children living in the United States of America through regularly conducted educational programs, cultural events and social activities. These organized activities are designed  to provide our students with opportunities to apply the language and literary skills obtained from their school work.
