NEW DIANA, TX (KLTV) - A New Diana school has quite a unique student body.

In 2015, six sets of twins were enrolled at Robert F. Hunt Elementary, but that's nothing compared to the duplicity in their classrooms today.

Step inside the schools doors and you may think your eyes are playing tricks on you.

"Seeing double is normal for us," says Principal Teresa Beckham.

That's because the school currently has 13 sets of twins walking the halls.

"I think that's pretty cool," says Levi Green who attends the school with his twin sister. "We have so much in common."

It's a record high for the campus

Teacher Courtney Verzosa is also a fan of the twin takeover, and when you meet her twin sister who teaches down the hall, you can see why.

"I think that it gives the kids something to relate to," says Verzosa. "We have a good time and it helps them form a relationship with us."

The school's principal says having so many twins is a benefit to the entire student body.

"Wherever they go they always have a friend to play with," says Beckham. "Everybody migrates to them because they are already a set playing."

In February, a high school in Chicago set the world record for the most twins enrolled; they had 44 sets of twins in their sophomore class.
