Zac Olumegbon, from Brixton Hill, south London, was stabbed to death last Friday morning outside Park Campus School in nearby West Norwood, south London.
Two youths, aged 16 and 17, spoke only to confirm their names when they appeared in court today charged with the murder.
The teenagers, both dressed in black, were remanded in custody and are next due to appear at Sutton Magistrates' Court on August 3.
They cannot be named because of their ages.
A third youth, aged 16, appeared before magistrates in Sutton this morning charged with Zac's murder and with causing grievous bodily harm to Zac's 14-year-old friend. He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey next week.
