Transportation to Vanguard High School

Mesquite ISD is excited to usher in a new era of education with the opening of Vanguard High School.  Many new exciting learning opportunities await our students at their new school.  

To effectively transport students from all areas of the district, MISD will use a shuttle system to transport students from their home campus to Vanguard. This process is commonly used by districts who operate choice schools. These shuttle buses will leave each high school campus (Mesquite, Horn, Poteet, West Mesquite and North Mesquite) at 8:35 a.m. Please note, students who live within two miles of their home high school campus are not eligible for bus transportation to their home campus. Vanguard operates on a different bell schedule to accommodate shuttle bus transport of students. 

Families will also have the option to provide their own transportation for their students if they wish. Students who are eligible for bus service to their home campus will continue to have bus service to their home campus. Once they arrive, they will catch another bus to Vanguard.  

Please check your student’s home campus bus route transportation at this link to ensure you remain aware of that important information. The Transportation Department is available to answer questions at 972-882-7550.  They may also be contacted via email:, or  

We wish all students a safe and successful school year at Vanguard.
