The local public International Community School was ranked second in the state and 30th in the nation in 2015; and other schools in Kirkland, including Eastside Preparatory School, are SEVP-certified. Kirkland grew substantially in 2011 by annexing the adjacent communities of Finn Hill, Juanita, and Kingsgate to absorb nearly seven square miles, 12,541 housing units, and about 32,000 new residents.

The duration of supply averaged 43 days in 2015, 57 days in 2014, and 56 days in 2013.
