It can only be as high as the outlet if nothing is blocked.
It sounds like the water is trying to run up-hill. Either the pan connector or the waste pipe has been set to accomadate a lower outlet an a new W/C. As long as it flushes ok it shouldn't be a problem, the only other way would be to either raise the toilet or lower the connection into the soil pipe.
