After an attempted suicide back in June, Paris Jackson is reportedly doing great at her new therapeutic high school, according to Radar Online.

The school, the location of which Radar doesn't disclose, specializes in working with troubled teen girls. It's reportedly in the mountains, and she was photographed with peers back in July at a graduation ceremony.

A source told the website that, “Paris is absolutely thriving and happy at the boarding school. She is making friends, and it’s wonderful to see, given the darkness that had taken over her life. Paris regularly video chats with grandmother, Katherine, biological mom, Debbie Rowe, and her brothers."

Prior to heading to this school, the 15-year-old tried to take her own life by cutting her wrists and swallowing a bottle of Motrin, leaving a suicide note before calling a suicide hotline. The hotline operator called 9-1-1.

It wasn't clear exactly what prompted the suicide attempt, but her family had been fighting over custody of Paris and her brothers, and she was reportedly being bullied at the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks.
