Tamil Classes

Tamil classes are held every Saturday at 9 am in the Hindu Temple in Greenland road. There are currently two batches - junior and senior.

The senior batch class is taught by Mahesh Muthukumar for children who have been attending Tamil classes for more than 2 years and have reached a higher level of reading and writing.

Krish Seetharaman teaches the junior class where students enrolled in 2011 and have achieved the level of reading and writing words and forming small sentences. You can enroll your child / children to the Tamil classes anytime - just bring them in on a Saturday morning.

JTM is grateful to Mr. Krishnamoorthy and Mr. Maheshkumar for teaching Tamil to our kids for the past 12 years. Their dedication and the service is invaluable.

Jacksonville Tamil School

Since our Tamil community has grown tremendously over the last few years, it was decided in the JTM’s GBM in October 2012 to run an expanded Tamil school with a defined curriculum for all ages and for the community.The volunteers from the Tamil community joined together to create the new school for the Jacksonville community, JTM Tamil School..

Tamil classes are held every Saturday at 3:30 pm in the Shepherd of the Woods Lutheran Church located at 6596 Columbia Park Court Jacksonville FL 32258 Tamil Palli Location.

To begin with, we have a formalized team called the Jacksonville Tamil Education Committee (JTEC). The members of this committee are from Jacksonville Tamil Mandram. The focus of the committee is to ensure the Jacksonville Tamil School follows a structured streamlined curriculum, planned schedules to cover the syllabus, and to support the teaching faculty as well.

JTM Tamil school is part of the American Tamil Academy and follows all of the standards of teaching from the ATA. The Tamil school is accredited by AdvancED in 2019.

In 2013, we started with 31 students focusing on Tamil speaking. Now the school has grown with over 100 students, 20+ teachers with seven grades. The focus is on literacy in Tamil, reading, writing, speaking and literatures such as Thirukkural, Athichudi and Tamil grammar.

Yes, like Spanish, French and Chinese languages taught in schools today, Tamil will be another recognized language taught in our schools. Wonderful, isn’t it?

In order for us to get there, we need your tremendous support. Please send your children to our Tamil school.

Our registration for new students will start around April or May and the regular classes will commence during September and follow the academic school year calendar.

Thank you to all the parents who have registered their children (existing students) to level 1. It is truly motivating to see your interest and enthusiasm. Please continue your support in helping take our Tamil School to the next level.

Together we will make Bharathi’s dream come true...தமிழ் இனி அமெரிக்க பள்ளிகளிலும் வாழும்!!
