I think Spanish is the most popular foreign language in US high schools
(since it's the native language of most of our hemisphere), followed by
French, and then either Latin or German.

In the smaller public high schools, it pretty much depends upon which
language one of the English teachers knows how to teach. I was lucky enough
to go through high school during the years the French teacher retired and
the school hired a Spanish teacher for her replacement. That was the only
way I had the opportunity to study both at that level.
