Bynes has re-enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, and according to her parents' lawyer, she is "doing great."
"We are all so proud of her, and can't wait to see her amazing designs on the runway someday," Tamar Arminak told People.
Rumors that Bynes was back in school started last week when a “secret" Twitter account many believe belongs to her dropped mentions of going back to class and touched on the rumors of why she left in the first place.
I'm Very excited to be back @FIDM— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 9, 2015
Fashion is my passion— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 9, 2015
I honestly hope that my classmates respect my beauty and my privacy and that I don't run into the same assholes as last year. Xoxo— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 9, 2015
I know exactly where I am in life and very focused on focusing on my future in the fashion industry— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 9, 2015
Class was great I'm excited to finally move on and follow my dreams :D— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 10, 2015
The so called friends that I did make told embarrassing lies about me to the media and jeopardized everything that I had going for me @FIDM— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 10, 2015
FYI I never smoked pot or showed up to class under the influence nor did I ever pay anyone to do my work for me. I'm smarter than that— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 10, 2015
I understand that I made friends with very poor students and that they most likely needed money for their college loans & I FORGIVE YOU!— ashley banks (@PersianLa27) October 10, 2015
One of the classmates @PersianLa27 could be referring to is Lindsey White, who gabbed to People in 2014 that Bynes stopped going to school because she had an embarrassing skin condition.
"She had all plans to finish school, but she had a few procedures done and didn't want to be in public at FIDM," White said. "She hated going to school," she said, adding that Bynes "wasn't out of control and she never threw a fit."
Bynes was rumored to be joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars this season, but that didn’t materialize — although that doesn’t mean we won’t see her on a future season.
"They think Amanda has a wonderful underdog story and DWTS is the perfect forum for her to prove she can entertain while being vulnerable [at] the same time," a source told OK! Magazine in May of 2015.
"It's perfect timing," the source continued. "People think she's still a mess, but that's no longer the case. DWTS is the perfect opportunity for her to prove to her friends, family and fans that she's back in control of her life."
