international instructional survey data such as PISA and PIRLS are generally at

School Literacy Program (SLP) which is in sync with the implementation of
Curriculum 2013. This study aims to analyze and calculate the difference of
literacy ability and students’ fourth graders critical thinking in schools that
organize SLP in three areas of the village, transitions, and cities located in
Sukabumi Indonesia. The results showed that the students' fourth-grade literacy
ability at the SLP organizing school was at a low level of 66.89, the middle level
55, the high level 54.67, and the advanced level of 55.89. The students' critical
thinking ability is at a low level of 82.94, 55.33 and 55.67. Based on the results
