The International S-Series "Schoolmaster" was a Type C (conventional) bus chassis manufactured by International Harvester, which became Navistar during its production run. It was introduced in 1979 as the replacement for the Loadstar bus chassis; it was used for both school bus and commercial bus applications. In 1989, it was replaced by the International 3800; both chassis were offered that year. The Schoolmaster was the last bus chassis designed by International Harvester.
