Seeing Double In Jacksonville

Teachers at an elementary school in Onslow County are seeing double this year. Make that double, times 15.

Silverdale Elementary has enrolled 15 sets of twins out of a total student body of 518. Another Onslow County school, Northwoods Park Middle, has 11 sets of twins enrolled, all but one set in the sixth grade.

Silverdale principal Mary Mills-McAllister has split up her siblings to encourage them to express their individuality. But she says teachers make sure they can see each other during the day to offset any separation anxiety.
