Stores and services include four restaurants and sandwich shops, dentists, a bank, coffee shops and numerous other service and specialty stores.
Klahanie is also home to two public schools, Challenger Elementary and Beaver Lake Middle School, both of which are part of the highly-rated Issaquah School District. Both Klahanie schools are located adjacent to the neighborhood ark.
Challenger Elementary School was built specifically to serve the neighborhood, and as a result, only kindergarten and special education students ride school buses each day. This neighborhood feel contributes to active participation by parents, an important reason families choose to call Klahanie home. Beaver Lake Middle School was one of the District's first schools to launch a Respect and Responsibility program. WASL scores in reading, writing, mathematics, and science are consistently among the highest in Washington State.
