New Report from IIE Looks at International Students at U.S. High Schools

A new report published by the Institute of International Education, "Charting New Pathways to Higher Education: International Secondary Students in the United States", provides comprehensive analysis on the more than 73 000 inbound international students who come to the United States for high school and what the trends mean for higher education enrolments and recruitment. The findings on high school student mobility complement the data that IIE releases each year on international college and university students in the United States in the annual Open Doors report; both reports are produced with the support of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The new IIE report looks closely at where the students come from and where they study—with breakdowns by U.S. state and types of schools. It provides narrative analysis and data tables that compare specific numbers and trends for international students at the secondary level with those for international students in higher education in the United States.
