28 reasons why some Grand Rapids students may be seeing and hearing double

One school, fourteen sets of twins.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Twin telepathy happens during almost every class period at Grand Rapids University Prep Academy.

"Last year, we had three sets of twins on our football team, so they'd say 'twin get in' and it'd be four people running on the field," said Channing Pearson, a senior at UPrep.

Channing and his twin brother Julian, are one of fourteen sets of twins at the 6th thru 12th grade school.

There are three sets of senior twins, one set of sophomore twins, four sets of freshman twins, two sets of eighth grade twins, one set of seventh grade twins and two sets of sixth grade twins.

Sixth grader Tomas Mendez said he loves going to school not only with his twin, but with all the twins, too.

"I feel like I fit in more," Mendez said.
