I'd say "At the peak of his term", but Word Reference (height - WordReference.com Dictionary of English, #4) tells me "height" is also correct.

Do these sentences have the same meaning?
When he was at his most successful, the President had enormous influence.
At the height of his term, the president had enormous influence.

What if I omitted 'term':
At his height, ...
No. That suggests that being 6 foot 2 has something to do with it.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
At the height of his career sounds natural to me.
Yes, we can think of President Carter for this. Generally disappointed in his own results during his single term, he has had seen great success with his humanitarian work thereafter -- when he was at his most successful.
