Is this possible or even feasible

Is it possible to replace schoolbus windows with these?

Anything's possible. They would certainly be a HUGE upgrade over the leaky standard windows.
You could ask Nat, or read over his thread.

It can be done, but it would have to be safety glass if your on the road.

YES. Make DAMN SURE it's tempered safety glass.

Speaking as a first responder... You don't want your body to interact with anything but tempered in an accident.

as an operator, I don't want my body coming into contact with ANY glass!

There are a few of us that have used residential windows.

Tempered glass and things like vent tubes can be ordered into the widows.

Left and right hand swing casement windows. (hand crank swing out)

Cheap.

Two or three pains of glass.

And on and on.

My currant build. Windows being installed are among the pages.

Ol Trunt's '35 Chevy build used very similar "household" windows" quite successfully. I'll have to search to see if the info is still here.

Meanwhile, as Nat stated, they can be ordered with a host of trick amenities. Double pane, gas filled, safety glass, etc. in just about any configuration...slide up, slide down, side-to-side, jalousies, tilt-out. For many, they can be real problem solvers at a bargain basement price as compared to the typical high-dollar "custom RV windows".
