Abstract
In geography learning, spatial intelligence is an important component for geography as a discipline that studies about the space. School environment has an important role in geography learning because school environments affect student's spatial intelligence. However, there is not a specific explanation of how the environment can affect to spatial intelligence. The aim of this study is to explain the process of regression between school environment and spatial intelligence. This study is a survey research to do in senior high school in Bandung, with total sample 264 respondents spread across nine schools. The relationship between the school environment and the spatial intelligence can be explained by path analysis with two others variable that is affordance (perception of the environment) and geo-literacy (literacy of geography). Path analysis conducted by researchers using the software SPSS 23 and AMOS 21. This analysis resulted in three models of the equation, those are (1) school environment don't significantly effect to affordance; (2) school environment significantly effect to geo-literacy; (3) geo-literacy significantly effect to the spatial. For more useful and further research, researcher suggests developing spatial intelligence instrument more intensive in order to give valid and standard instrument.
