About Us

  • BKM Tamil Schools Welcoming place that engages each child in Tamil Language.

    Houston’s First Tamil School (தமிழ் பள்ளி) was started by BKM at Pearland at Sri Meenakshi Temple with a humble beginning by a group of dedicated volunteers with 5 kids and it soon grew to 150 kids.

    As more people started to settle in other parts of Greater Houston, to address their need, BKM started additional branches in Katy and Woodlands in the year 2004. In the year 2005, a branch was opened in Sugarland to cater for the rapid growth and needs of the community, this trend continues with the latest Tamil School opening in Houston area in 2015.

    • Teaching starts briefly with letters and sounds, but quickly progresses to encourage speaking, reading and writing
