Abstract: West Java, Indonesia's most populous province, is known to have a strong Islamic tradition. However, in this province, there are many Christian schools besides, of course, Islamic schools. Both schools provide religious education and religious tolerance. The research aims to explore the religiosity and religious tolerance of Islamic and Christian junior high school students. Descriptive - quantitative research method. Religiosity and religious tolerance questionnaire research instrument. The sample was 150 Islamic junior high school students and 150 Christian junior high school students in West Java. The research results are quite surprising. Islamic junior high school students have a high level of religiosity but low levels of religious tolerance, while Christian students are high in religious tolerance but low in religiosity. The implication is that religiosity needs to be taught together with religious tolerance. Second, Islamic Middle Schools must maintain the religious education model but improve the religious tolerance education model. Meanwhile, Christian junior high schools must maintain the religious tolerance education model but improve their religiosity education model.
