417. Discovery Academy
Discovery Academy is located in Provo in Utah. It was founded in 1989. Over the years the facility has been sold to new management.
Today it is mostly know for the 2002 rape of a female student. The rapist was convicted in court
The school was also sued by a mother who claimed her son was assaulted by other students.
The school has been sued by the Disability Law Center.
Finally there have been difficulties getting credits transferred which seems to have been a larger problem under the old management.
It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
