Go visit Springville Elementary School and take a look around. Chances are you will do a double take when you glance at some of the students.
 
Maybe it’s because the school population includes 20 sets of twins, along with two sets of triplets. 
 
SES principal Bobby Byrd said it is amazing to have those odd configurations in the building.
 
“Having over 900 students at our school is a blessing,” Byrd said. “It just shows how much Springville is growing, and how many families are moving here. We have a great community and great schools.”
 
Does he ever gets the twins or triplets mixed up, and call them the wrong name? 
 
“All the time,” Byrd said.
 
SES guidance counselor Tami Wester said this is a record number of twins at the school as far as she knows.
 
“Several years ago, we had 18 sets of twins,” Wester said. “We didn’t even know they were twins until they showed up this morning, and that’s because we have a lot of new kindergarten twins. 
 
“It is really cool to do a double take. Some of them are identical twins while others are fraternal. It is a very unique experience “
 
Wester said the mothers of the two sets of triplets are teachers at SES.
