Global Students Fill American High Schools

High school students in classroom

In a Time Magazine story, the number of international students attending American public secondary schools is at an all-time high. That data has some potentially worrisome trends. According to the Institute of International Education, the increase in foreign students is largely from China.

Most of the international students are banking on graduating with good grades in order to enroll in an American university. Their chances would be diminished greatly if they graduated from high school in their country and applied for a student F-1 visa with the hopes of matriculating at an American college.

Asian students are very interested in obtaining a public school secondary education that makes them academically competitive to enter college here. Having an American public school diploma, coupled with a college degree, is a very powerful tool in their country.
