Mathematics is an important subject in education. Mathematics learning in schools focused on problem-solving ability. One of thinking skills necessary for solving the math problem is reflective thinking. Reflective thinking is one component of higher-order thinking skills. The purpose of this study was to describe students’ reflective thinking skills in solving geometry problems with reference indicators based on Surbeck, Han, & Moyer. This research is a qualitative descriptive study with three subjects in class VIII students of one of the state junior high schools in Wonogiri. The subject selection technique used purposive sampling. The research instrument was a test and interview guideline. The validity of the data using triangulation technique. The data analysis used the steps of data reduction, data presentation, and drawing a conclusion. The results of the study concluded that students with high prior knowledge can think reflectively well, this was indicated by students can reach the three components of reflective thinking. Students with moderate and low prior knowledge can reach indicators on reacting component, and can’t reach several indicators on elaborating and contemplating components.
