In February 1910, Robinson was commissioned to design a four-room school for the Cherrydale community in Arlington, Va. Construction began that spring and the school opened in the fall. The two-story brick Cherrydale School had an overhanging, low hipped roof, a slightly recessed central entrance, and banks of window separated by concreted panels between the first and second stories.

Because of an increasing student population, a new Cherrydale School was built in 1917 next to Robinson’s school. Both schools remained in use until 1969 and were demolished in the 1970s.
