Herndon High School
In 1910, the Dranesville District authorized $10,000 in bonds to build a new school and contracted Robinson in July 1911 to design a high school in Herndon, Va. Construction began on Herndon High School in November and was completed in 1912. The school, which likely had seven or eight rooms, was similar to other schools Robinson designed at that time with triple banks of 9-over-9 windows separated by concrete panels between floors, a hipped roof and domed cupola.
Herndon’s central entrance with an arched transom and sidelights, as well as the window configuration, is identical to the one-and-a-half-story Floris School, built the same year less than three miles away. Herndon's design and scale is also very similar to the Round Hill School in Loudoun.
By 1924, Herndon had an addition to the entrance that was designed to cut down on the wind’s impact. A fire destroyed Herndon High in January 1927 and its replacement was built on the same site.
