Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! 

I am LaKeysha C. Arthur, the new principal of Dorothy Height Charter School.  This is my 9th year as a member of the Dorothy Height Charter School’ family and I am truly humbled by the opportunity to lead this dynamic school filled with dedicated staff and amazing scholars.  Although we have a change in leadership, our commitment to our mission remains the same – preparing all students for success in college and a life of opportunity and choice by developing their academic skills, lifelong passions and personal character.  

Our school culture is defined by our core values of Perseverance, Excellence, Courage and Community.  For the past 4 years, Height has been awarded an “A” rating for academic growth by the state of Louisiana and we are committed to continuing this tradition.  Our focus remains on providing all scholars with a rigorous academic education, safe learning environment and a positive student culture. 

I believe that education is the vehicle that drives scholars toward their dreams.  I am committed to this life-changing work and ensuring our scholars’ academic and social needs are met.  I look forward to partnering with you and your scholar as we take Height to higher heights.  Please contact our front office if you would like any additional information about our school.
