SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) -

Teachers and staff at one local elementary school are seeing double. There's no trouble with their vision, just a record number of twins this year. 

Identity crisis takes on a whole new meaning at Lee Hunter Elementary.

There are 11 sets of twins among the student body of 415.

"We have 5 sets in the 4th grade, 3 sets in the 3rd grade, 2 sets in the second grade, and 1 set in the 1st grade," said Principal Liz Martin.

At first, no one really noticed the large amount of twins until the secretary started digging a bit deeper.

"It was a amazing, I thought this has to be a record," said Sharon Turner-Secretary.

It's a new record for this school district for sure.

"It's just very unusual," said Martin. 

"We're not the only twins, we are the same as everybody else," said 4th Grader Sam Drury.

"It's good we're not the only ones." 

If anyone can relate to the parents of these kids, it's their principal who also raised twins. 

"It's double everything," said Liz Martin.
