The collision occurred shortly before 7 a.m. about four miles northwest of Salisbury.
A witness told WBTV the bus was stopped with its stop arms out and lights flashing. James Cottrell said a car approaching from the opposite direction struck the student.
The teen was a student at West Rowan High School. His name has not been released.
The students on the bus were transferred to another bus and taken to school.
