Seeing Double... 9 Sets of Twins Graduate From One Middle School
Nine sets of twins in one eighth grade class graduated this year from Central Middle School in Tinley Park, Illinois. Six sets of the twins are fraternal and three identical.
The twins say going to school together has led to some pretty fun pranks. “You get to confuse people on purpose just to get a laugh out of it,” one boy said. His twin added, “And you can make it look like you’re in two places at once.”
"We have 268 students in the 8th grade, as well as we have nine sets of twins, which comes out to 7% of our eighth grade class," said Principal Randy Fortin.
The siblings had been separated in classrooms to avoid confusion, but on graduation day, each set of twins walked two-by-two.
