The GR School That Has 14 Sets Of Twins
One visit to Grand Rapids University Preparatory Academy (UPREP) in Michigan and you’ll be seeing double. That’s because the school’s student body of just 441 students includes 14 sets of twins.
In the senior class of 35 students alone, six are twins. And the assistant principal, Jessalyn Radde told WXMI, that along with the 28 twin students, there are also two staff members that are twins. On top of that, an assistant teacher at the school is also a twin.
Needless to say, things can get a little confusing for students, especially when it comes to the school’s football games. “Last year, we had three sets of twins on our football team,” says senior Channing Pearson. “So they’d say ‘twin get in’ and it’d be four people running on the field.”
