School officials in Columbus, Ohio, announced plans to open a foreign-language high school next year that will begin with about 200 ninth-graders learning French, Spanish and possibly Chinese. With a goal to eventually enroll 800 high-school students, the district plans to draw students from its French and Spanish immersion academies as well as attracting other students through its alternative-school lottery. Students at the school would be able to enroll in an immersion track or a non-immersion track that would offer an international focus.
