Education about COVID-19 is a method to enhance school students' knowledge because school clusters are one of the contributors to the increasing number of COVID-19 in Indonesia.

Methods: The research method adopted was quasi-experimental, with a pre-and post-test without control on 72 students. The students were selected randomly through the coordination of the student affairs teacher involved in this study. The online g-form was used twice to collect data. Pre-education data collection was conducted a day before the implementation of education, and then the evaluation of post-education was implemented several days after performing education. Pre- and post-education used two (2) questionnaires on knowledge and anxiety. Data were analyzed by using the Wilcoxon test

Results: The results of the Wilcoxon test on the pre- and post-education variables on students' knowledge presented a value of -4.938 (p = 0.000) with a p-value of <0.05. Therefore, it was concluded that there was an effect of COVID-19 education on students' knowledge. The results of the Wilcoxon test on the pre-and post-education variables on student anxiety showed a value of -3.587 (p = 0.000) with a p-value of <0.05.
