New statewide test results released Thursday show that all Burlingame and Hillsborough school districts are well above the 800 threshold for being considered a proficient school. In fact, many of the schools' scores, including all of the Hillsborough scores are in the 900s.
However, nearly half of the schools decreased in their performance from last year and saw a dip in growth.
