Nowadays, Islamic education like pesantren (Islamic boarding school) has the undeniably substantial contributions to the advancement of education in Indonesia. However, as a matter of fact, the learning system of Islamic boarding school could be a great burden for students since it urges them to focus on both learning the national curriculum (K13) and the school’s curriculum. SMP Daarut Tauhid, an example of Islamic boarding school, that has two types of class, namely regular and takhasuz class, has been implementing this sort of system. In regular class, students are required to memorize at least 1 juz of Al-Qur’an when they are at 9th grade. Meanwhile, students in takhasuz class have an obligation to memorize 30 juz of Al-Qur’an when they are at 9th grade. As a consequence, this would interference the learning of the other subjects including science lesson. Therefore, this study was undertaken to investigate learning activities of science lesson in takhasuz class which cover the use of learning media, assessment and evaluation and also to figure out the differences between teaching learning activities in regular class and those in takhasuz class. This study was conducted as a qualitative research with descriptive approach. Questionnaire and interview were used to collect the data needed. Questionnaire was used to get the information regarding to the teaching learning process and the facilities that are used. To validate the data, interview was used as well. The findings show that although in takhasuz class, students have more hours to focus on learning the school’s curriculum, teacher still gives the best results on their achievement just like in regular class. The teacher also gives an extra support such as using media that can make students understand easily, making group for students so that they can study independently, and providing laboratory activity to boost their activeness. Despite that, the findings also reveal some problems faced by the teacher, which are the lack of facilities in the laboratory and the limited hours for doing an experiment. Based on the research results, it is suggested that the teacher should do the experiment that are suitable with the allocation time of study, and use the materials that can be easily obtained for the experiment.
