In Mother Teresa's chart Jupiter is the most elevated planet

Astronomically, the distance of a planet above the horizon; its altitude.

The planet closest to the Medium Coeli in a horoscope is the most elevated[1] one.

Traditionally astrologers attribute great significance to a planet in elevation, and some will assess it as being the dominant planet in the chart.

Don't confound elevation and Exaltation.[2]
