This research aims at finding out the effectiveness of guided-inquiry learning model with Natural Environmment Exploration (JAS) approach on students’ learning result of environmental pollution material. This recent study was conducted in MAN 1 Pati in the odd semester in academic year 2017/2018. The research design applied is non-equivalent control group design. The population for this research is the whole students in X MIA MAN 1 Pati which is divided into 5 classes, while the sample taken for this research was X MIA 1 and X MIA 4 selected by using purposive sampling technique.

The result of t-test showed tcount 0.000<0.05 which means there is a signifficant difference between control and experimental class. It also achieved N-Gain > 0.3 with the mean by 0.54.  For the class control, 65.38% of students accomplished > 75 and N-Gain 0.14. Based on the research result, it can be inferred that guided-inquiry learning with JAS approach is effective to improve students’ learning result for the subject material of environmental pollution.
