Teneo’s easy platform has made learning fun, simpler, more interactive, and more personalised. While the end goal is to learn for the final exams, my teachers have taught me invaluable lessons that go far beyond the curriculum. My teachers at Teneo were beyond incredible, and I’m immensely thankful to have been taught by experts who cared about both my academic and personal success.
Our Programme of Assessment – how we formally assess students throughout the year – align with South Africa’s Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS). We follow full moderation protocols to meet the requirements of the National Protocol Assessment. We also create new assessments every year, never reusing scripts for assessments.
Many Teneo teachers are appointed every year as Chief Markers, Markers and Examiners for SA’s top Examination Boards. In 2023, 24 Teneo teachers were appointed as Examination Markers for both the IEB and SACAI Examination boards, with 4 Teneo teachers also selected to set Preliminary Examinations for SACAI and 3 Teneo teachers selected as Senior Markers for IEB. In addition, one Teneo teacher was appointed as the Cambridge Assistant Examiner for iGCSE and AS and two Teneo teachers were appointed as Assistant Examiners for Pearson for International GCSE and AS.
With five cohorts of matriculants, Teneo Online School is proud of our students for consistently achieving outstanding academic results, putting Teneo Online School significantly ahead of national benchmarks for academic performance.

I love the fact that teaching takes place in a transparent manner. As a Teneo parent, you can monitor how your child behaves and interacts with others, and how the teacher treats your child. I like the fact that we can go back to recorded classes in case our child did not catch up in live classes or is struggling with the content. What I love most is that there is no peer pressure around marks. My child’s marks are confidential and cannot be compared with those of their classmates – they’re for the parents’ eyes only. I am a very happy and satisfied parent.

My 7 year old son in Grade is struggling with expressing himself when communicating, he speaks too fast and most times he finds it hard to string a coherent sentence. Teneo Teachers did not put any labels on my son. His progress is amazing. He can read well, he is very good at Mathematics and doing well in Afrikaans (a language he started this year) I am so pleased with Teneo Education, their system and the teachers’ patience make a difference in a child’s esteem. I am very happy with this school.
