The number of international students coming to the U.S. for high school is leveling off after years of rapid growth, according to a new study released Wednesday.
Researchers at the nonprofit Institute of International Education in Washington say growth is slowing as students face more education opportunities in their home countries and abroad. But the U.S. remains a top study destination for international students, researchers say.
“The numbers have been growing at slower rates each year, but there’s still definitely interest and growth in international students coming to earn a high school diploma in the U.S.,” said Christine Farrugia, author of the new study.
