Round-up: Dual-language classes catch on in Texas; N.Y. student accepted to all eight Ivies

Dual-language programs catch on in Texas (AP): More schools across Texas are testing out dual-language classrooms where native English speakers learn alongside students who speak Spanish or some other language at home. Across the state, nearly 70,000 public-school students are enrolled in dual-language programs; that figure has doubled since 2009-2010.

The 17-year-old high-school senior scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT, placing him in the 99th percentile of all students who took the test.
