About BKM
Tamil School

Bharathi KalaiManram Tamil School was founded in 2000 at Sri Meenakshi Temple with 5 kids to provide a forum for the kids to learn and converse in Tamil language and in the process experience the Tamil culture.

As theTamil diaspora in Houston area grew, BKM also expanded to five locations – Pearland, Sugar land, Cypress, Katy, and Houston. In 2018, BKM Tamil Schools were accredited by AdvancED (currently Cognia). Our Schools are run 100% by volunteers from various backgrounds such as Doctors, Engineers, Teachers etc. Their passion for Tamil, and willingness to serve the community is the main reason for the success of our schools.

One of the primary goals of the school is to develop confidence in children to speak in Tamil to their parents and grandparents. In addition, our schools provide structure education to all the kids by following the ITA (International Tamil Academy) and/or ATA (American Tamil Academy) curriculum. Our Tamil school is affiliated with International Tamil Academy (ITA) formerly known as California Tamil Academy (CTA) and leverages their structured teaching methodology and proven teaching materials to educate the students.

As part of extracurricular activity, the school provides a stage where the kids can express their talent in Iyal, Isai and Nadagam (Literature, Music, & Drama). We encourage our students to participate in other cultural events, and Tamil related enrichment activities. Our teachers take extra efforts to work with children and parents who are non-native Tamil speakers and for special needs children to ensure that they are not left behind.

BKM Tamil School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.

Our schools provide education at a standard equal to the Texas high school curriculum, that it can be leveraged to get a high school credit in lieu of Foreign language


BKM Tamil Schools mission is to inspire and teach all kids to learn Tamil language and culture. We want to be the best in providing highest quality education at the lowest cost in Houston and its suburbs.
