What happened at Provo Canyon School?

Provo Canyon School is a therapeutic boarding school located in Utah, United States. The school has been accused of mistreating students who attended the school, especially during the 1970s and 1980s.

Many former students of Provo Canyon School have alleged that they were physically, emotionally, and sexually abused during their time at the school. Some students have also claimed that they were subjected to solitary confinement and forced medication.

The allegations against the school gained widespread attention after Paris Hilton, a former student, spoke publicly about her experience at Provo Canyon School. In a documentary titled "This is Paris" released in 2020, Hilton shared her traumatic experience of being sent to the school as a teenager and described the emotional and physical abuse she endured while attending.

Since then, other former students have come forward to share their stories and experiences at Provo Canyon School. The school has denied the allegations of abuse, but several lawsuits have been filed against the school over the years.
