As a school, Mother Teresa Regional won second place tournament award and second place school award. Those awards are given to the school with the most wins and the highest percentage of wins.

The debate program at Mother Teresa Regional School is an after school club moderated by Mrs. Katey Patrizio. The students have been very successful in this endeavor and have learned a great deal from the experience.  As part of the Garden State Debate League, the students have learned to be poised under pressure, research a topic from both sides of the debate, and speak in public and accept feedback publicly.  The program is in its second year at MTRS and continues to grow.
