International students end up at US high schools through various means, such as exchange programs, agency agreements, or the random student who moves to town. Exchange students typically have the support of a sponsoring organization such as Rotary International or a host family. They arrive at the start of the school year and often have their academic credentials and immigration status in order. The more challenging cases involve individual students who appear at the door at any time during the year and those coming through an agency.
