Meridian Karino has a high school in Tekwane, Mbombela (Nelspruit) that provides the excellent Curro education to learners from Grade 8 to Grade 12. Our class sizes are limited to no more than 35, so that your child can get personal attention, and we have a wide variety of specialised subjects, such as Siswati and Robotics. Teaching takes place in English and we also have a boarding school that offers your child a safe, warm home away from home.

As a Meridian school that forms part of the Curro school group, we are managed by Curro as part of a joint venture with Old Mutual and the Public Investment Corporation. Also, our goal is to give our learners a head start in reaching their dreams, whatever these might be.

You get the excellent Curro education

We are committed to providing learners with an excellent education. That is why our approach to teaching the national CAPS curriculum is based on project-based learning and self-discovery. This approach allows our high school learners to explore the learning material beyond just the textbook through research, experiments and assignments, while preparing them for their final exams in Grade 12. Regular assessments and tests take place, of course, but it’s important to us that learners can use their intellectual abilities to make the material real to them in some way. This teaches learners to take initiative and make connections between pieces of knowledge – which further develops critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.


As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. A nearby primary school whose children can progress to us is Curro Academy Mbombela. We also have a boarding school that offers your child a safe, caring home away from home. Contact us for more information!


What happens in high school

Our senior phase starts by helping Grade 8 learners grow accustomed to the greater workload of higher intensity in high school. We limit the number of learners in each class to ensure that they get individual attention in exactly the places they need. Our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. From Grade 10, we prepare learners for their final exams in Grade 12. Teaching takes place in English and learners can choose Afrikaans and Siswati as additional language options.


A wider subject choice

Our learners can choose elective subjects beyond what is offered at our school. These subjects take place digitally and are presented live by Curro teachers. Lessons are scheduled during the school day, with supervised self-directed sessions after hours. These subjects can be seen as an extension of the excellent Curro education your child gets with us, and they still write their regular final exams.

We use tablets in class

Technology has become a part of our daily lives and our learners are comfortable around it. By using technology in class, we meet learners where they are and give them a head start in the technology they will use in their eventual workplace. This is why our learners may choose to view textbooks on their tablets or in hard copy.

Learners have access to the school’s internet and Wi-Fi, a school email account, and an interactive platform to communicate with teachers.


Activities your child can enjoy

One part of the excellent Curro education, is that academics are balanced with sports and cultural activities. Participation activities promote team-awareness, collaboration, and self-confidence. Our focused variety of activities, such as dance and chess, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
