This study aims to investigation students’ digital literacy skill of students Grade X and XI in Senior High School in Yogyakarta. There are three step of this research. First, we construct the item format and aspect of digital literacy skill. Second, the administration of this research to 193 students of science class in Yogyakarta which selected randomly. The last, analysis data of students’ digital literacy skill based on educational level. For the profile of students’ digital we used descriptive and quantitative statistics (frequency and percent). To determine the significant difference of the students’ level we also used independent sample t-test. Result of this study is the students’ digital literacy skill of all students are very low level. In addition, there is significant difference of students digital literacy skill based on educational level. The conclusion is students’ digital literacy skill in Yogyakarta is very low and there must an effort to force these skill. Recommendation for the future study is to developing a learning model that can enhance students’ digital literacy skill. For the policy makers, learning based on digital literacy skill must be integrated on the curriculum. ICT learning should be thought to students in Indonesia, especially in Yogyakarta
