172. Tipton Academy
Tipton Academy was owned by the same people who also ran Meadowlark Academy. Both facilities closed at the same time. DHS in Kansas started an investigation which led to the closure of the facilities in short time.
What they found is not known but the investigator back then called the situation shameful.
It could not have been fun having been forced to attend this school as a teenager.
