The objective of this present research is to analyze the implementation of learning geometry through a scientific learning consisting of three aspects: 1) teacher's activities, 2) students' activities and, 3) the achievement results. The adopted approach is a descriptive-quantitative one and the subject is the Class VII students of Islamic Junior High School in Indonesia. The data were obtained through direct observations in order to gain some knowledge of the teacher's and students' learning activities. The results of the students' learning activities were obtained through geometry tests. The research results showed that the teachers were able to implement the preplanned learning activities and their leaning activities may be able to improve the students' learning activities. Moreover, the five aspects of the scientific approach namely observing, asking questions, reasoning, attempting and presenting, were well implemented. The students' activities were also done as planned and all the aspects of the learning activities as stated in the approach may said to be well implemented. The mean value of students' learning results in groups was found to be 96; meanwhile their individual learning result was found to be 95. This condition showed that the students' learning results were under a very good category.
