Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) provides a holistic perspective to act sustainably through activities directed to the community. The Adiwiyata program develops students' behaviour and through good school governance to support sustainable development but has several problems and obstacles including less understanding of the concept of an environmentally friendly school, lack of communication and human resources, and there is no statistical data on the environment perception or environmental awareness in Indonesia. This study aims to analyze school potencies in ESD implementation and expect Adiwiyata school to be able to contribute to the implementation of ESD in Indonesia. Six school leaders in Jakarta were interviewed to gather information on school potencies for the implementation of ESD in Adiwiyata schools. The results show that both schools have obstacles in the process of implementing policies and activities with the concept of sustainability even though they have the potencies to implement the ESD program.
