Dorothy I. Height is committed to cultivating a community of lifelong learners by providing experiences that address the needs of all scholars. We take a holistic approach to educate, empower, and elevate scholars to be effective global leaders. Arts are infused into our academic curriculum to expose our students to different learning styles and arts-related enrichment opportunities, supported in our newly renovated and expanded 21st-century building. We are a restorative practices intensive site, meaning that we use a positive approach to discipline to assist with creating a positive climate and schoolwide culture. On January 25, 2022, the Board voted to close Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School at the end of school year 2022-23 and rezone students to either Dorothy I. Height Elementary School, The Historic Samuel Coleridge Taylor Elementary School, or Furman L. Templeton Preparatory Academy.
