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.



I bow to Mother Tamil. Education and Discipline are my two eyes with which I perceive the world. Using them, I will strive to bring pride to my community and country.

I pledge that during my lifetime, I will not cause distress to anyone's mind or body. I, to the best of my ability, will help those in need or in pain. May we and everyone in the world be blessed and prosperous.

மிசௌரி தமிழ்ப்பள்ளி உறுதிமொழி

நான் என் தாய்த்தமிழை வணங்குகிறேன்.
கல்வியும், ஒழுக்கமும் எனது இரு கண்கள்.
இவற்றால் என் வீட்டுக்கும், நாட்டுக்கும் பெருமை சேர்ப்பேன்.
நான் எனது வாழ்நாளில் யாருடைய உடலுக்கும் மனதுக்கும் துன்பம் தரமாட்டேன்
துன்பப்படுவோர்க்கு என்னால் முடிந்த உதவிகளைச் செய்வேன்.
வாழ்க வையகம்! வாழ்க வளமுடன்!
