MISSOURI TAMIL SCHOOL
Welcome to the Missouri Tamil School. 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 are proud of our heritage and strive to take it forward to our next generation.
Missouri Tamil School was started in 2005 with 55 students and has grown rapidly ever since. We currently have 300 students registered this year. We are affiliated with the American Tamil Academy (ATA) and follow a curriculum devised by them for grades Mazhalai to Nilai 8. The curriculum is designed by incorporating our Tamil culture as well as activities, festivals, and games familiar to the children growing up in America.
