This study aims to determine the implementation of the Independent Curriculum at Darur Rohmah junior high school, its impact on learning and the problems faced in implementing the curriculum. This research uses a qualitative descriptive approach with a case study method. Data collection is done through interviews, observation, and documentation. The data analysis technique follows the analysis concept of Miles and Huberman. The results of this study indicate that the implementation of the independent curriculum at Darur Rohmah Junior High School is outlined in three programs, namely recycling entrepreneurship, making traditional herbal medicine using the flute technique, and making batik. The implementation of the three programs is able to restore learning conditions, increase motivation and enthusiasm for learning, develop creativity, critical reasoning, independence, and strengthen the spirit of mutual cooperation and harmonize the competencies of students. The obstacles faced in the implementation of the program are the limited facilities and infrastructure, lack of competence of educators and the adaptation process of teachers and students who are not fast enough. These problems can be overcome by deepening competence and more mature preparation.
