Students attending their neighborhood school or attending a school through the Open Enrollment (Choice) Program must provide their own transportation to and from school. Please view our Traffic Guidelines and Good Neighbor & Safety Tips sections to help plan your student's ways to and from school.
There two buses that you might see parked in front of Challenger before and after school. They are for students with the following services:
- If your student qualifies for transportation services based on Special Education services, the SDUSD Transportation Services Department page is very informative.
- MCAS Miramar also has a bus that will transport students who live on base to and from school. Please check with the Military School Liasion for more information.
Challenger's two school spirit images face the Shuttle Court on the mural spanning the width of the auditorium building. Every day while students are waiting for school to begin they enjoy the cheetah sprinting east (shown below) and the shuttle floating in space. This mural is part of the set painted by artist Justin Devine during a beautification project in 2009.
