According to National Agency for Disaster Management data, more than 46, 000 schools in Indonesia had been affected by the disaster in the past 15 years and around 250, 000 schools in Indonesia are located in the disaster management area. Even though, school is a vital infrastructure for the development of a country's civilization. In the school, the process of character forming for the next generation of the nation both socially and intellectually takes place. After the 9.1 SR earthquakes and tsunami in Aceh on December 26, 2004 the disaster risk management movements which were begun from school were more intensively conducted. Among the disaster risk management movements at the school level, there is a concept and formulation of the environment and disaster mitigation-based school (SWALIBA) by the Indonesian Geographer Association (IGI) and the Indonesian Geography Student Association (IMAHAGI). Many of the schools at the primary and secondary education level began to adopt that concept. One of the schools which adopted the SWALIBA concept is junior high school 41 of Semarang City and has been applying it for 5 years. This research was conducted to study the applied risk management strategies. The result showed the gap between the applied strategy and the perception which formed the preparedness characteristic of the students as the implementation object.
