The Internet makes a range of distance and time is no longer an obstacle in obtaining information. It can be accessed in every place and every time. However, if the teenagers do not use the internet wisely or they use it to find some negative contents on websites, it will result in negative impacts on them. This study aimed at investigating some attitudes toward the use of the internet for students. The samples of the study were students in SMA N 1 Kediri. The method used was a survey by asking the students to fill out a questionnaire. The findings show that most of the students give a positive attitude toward the use of the internet for students. Most of them argue that crimes will be decreased if the students used the internet wisely. Also, there will be many creative ideas initiated by students for the development of this country.
