In these studies, learning happen before, during and after by implementing flipped learning method to encourage student creativity level in school based. The objective of this studies to identify student’s creativity level, stimulate the acceptance of economics students by using FL method between FL groups and conventional group also known as traditional method and increasing of students achievement by using FL. Quantitative quasi -experimental methods were used. To evaluated student’s achievement pre and post-test question be given. To evaluated student creativity and acceptances of teaching method, pre and post questionnaire be given with 5 Likert scales was used the control group which apply conventional method and treatment groups which apply flipped learning method. There are 6 questions for creativity and 5 question for students’ acceptance of their teaching method involve 44 student’s as respondent of the studies. By using Statistical Packages for Social Science (SPSS) version 26.0 data been analysed.  The results of the study were analysed using Pearson Correlation, standard deviation and mean. The results show increased of student’s creativity level and student acceptance by implementation of FL compared to conventional method. At the same time student achievement also shows developments. This article provides space for future research by identifying the FL method and the gaps. This article serves as a reference for future studies regarding FL on teaching economics.
