ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -

The Ann Arbor school district is proposing to accept up to 200 students from China who would each pay $10,000 a year.

The students would attend one of three high schools and live with local families. Superintendent Jeanice Swift says she has "no doubt" the community will embrace the plan, although she doesn't how soon the district would get 200 students.

Teenagers from China would attend school for two years. Swift considers Ann Arbor to be a "global city" and believes families whose children are learning the Mandarin language would be thrilled to host a native speaker.

The Ann Arbor News says Chinese students likely would try to attend a U.S. college after getting a diploma.
