This study is designed as a case study and concerned on qualitative data, which reflected what actually happened in the area. The principal, the English teachers and students are placed as the key informants. The data is gained from the informants by applying in depth interview, questionnaire, documentation and observation. The data are analyzed by employing two methods, those are: descriptive qualitative and descriptive quantitative. There are two problems in this study that can be seen from two perspectives; syllabus designing and students' needs analysis. From the perspectives of syllabus designing, the problem arises on defining a syllabus typically as the content standard which is commonly and formally provided by the higher authority (i.e. Ministry of National Education). In evidence, the existence of UN (Ujian Nasional/National Examination) makes teachers come into problems. Moreover, from students' needs analysis perspective, teachers define Target Situation Analysis (TSA) mainly as the content of students' subject matters of their majors rather than students' linguistic performance after finishing the course. Further, teachers define Present Situation Analysis (PSA) mainly as students' strengths/weaknesses in following English course. A bibliography is included.
