If the information given here is all there is, you cannot find the height of the trapezoid.

You would need to know the area, some angles, or some other relations between the various dimensions. Often, the Pythagorean Theorem is useful for writing equations relating various dimensions of the figure. For a certain range of values of area, there could be up to 4 different solutions for the height, depending on the internal angles and whether the given base is the long one or the short one.
