Theodor-Fliedner-Internat does not belong to one specific school. The advantage is that TFI cooperates with various educational forms, and selected schools in Düsseldorf and the surrounding areas. Based on each student’s individual needs and skills, we will work together to find the best suitable school for the student. This includes the German "Gymnasium", "Realschule", "Hauptschule", vocational and language schools.
