    Part of the campus of the prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy is seen Monday, April 11, 2016, in Exeter, New Hampshire.

    A judge has allowed a student to return to a New Hampshire prep school, months after his mother alleged the school wrongfully expelled him after he had sex with another student.

    Both sides reached an agreement signed by a federal judge Friday to reinstate the boy full time at Phillips Exeter Academy.

    The boy had sex with a female student in January 2016. Both were 15. She reported the encounter to the campus health center. Exeter decided he had violated their sexual misconduct policy. A lawsuit filed by his mother alleged Exeter first said the boy would be placed on leave, but could return after seeking therapy. Instead, he was withdrawn.

    A jury found Exeter liable for breach of contract.

    A judge temporarily reinstated the boy in December. The agreement said he's been attending Exeter "with no adverse effects."
