Actress Amanda Bynes is doing “extremely well” as she settles into life as a fashion school student, according to her mother.

The former child star has been working on rebuilding her life since her release from a rehabilitation clinic in December, months after she had to be hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold following months of bizarre behavior, which included arrests for DUI and drug possession.

She enrolled in a course at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Orange County, California last year and mother Lynn, who has become the “Hairspray” star’s conservator, has now revealed she is thriving in school.
