The number of international students coming to the United States for high school is leveling off after years of rapid growth.

Researchers at the Institute of International Education say growth is slowing as students find more education opportunities in their home countries and abroad.

American high schools enrolled nearly 82,000 foreign students last year, more than triple the number from 2004. From 2012 to 2013 alone, the number increased 8 percent, but by last year, the annual growth rate had fallen to just 1 percent.
