The practice of our character education in schools generally was just only based on the teaching of subject matters. The consequence was that the students were able to understand the subjects but their behaviors were still far from good conducts. That is why teachers of SMPN 1 Singaraja practice some local values of Bali as a foundation to strengthen good conduct of their students. This study was aimed at explaining practices of Bali character values done through school education and civic education at SMP N 1 Singaraja. This study used educational ethnographic research design and involved school committee, school principal, community leaders, teachers, and students as the informants. Data were collected by doing observation, interview, and studying documents. Data were then analyzed by domain analysis, taxonomic analysis, componential analysis, and discovering cultural themes. The results showed that (1) Local wisdom of Balinese people can be used as a foundation to strengthen the implementation of educational program oriented to the development of the nation's character values; (2) Civic education has a strategic role in character education of the nation; and (3) The nation’s character education is strengthened by of Bali community local wisdom values-based is believed to be capable of producing Balinese young generation with Indonesian character. The implication of this study was that schools in Bali necessarily use some local values.
