Nine Sets Of Twins Graduate Middle School

Posted: Updated:

Tinley Park, IL.-There was a unique graduation ceremony in Illinois on Tuesday night when nine sets of twins all graduated from the same middle school at the same time.

Six sets are fraternal and three are identical.

The group is part of a class of more than 200 at Central Middle School in Tinley Park, Illinois.

Each twin says growing up together has been a fun experience, which has often led to confusion amongst friends and teachers.

"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.

Over the years, all the twins have been separated into different classrooms to avoid confusion, but on graduation day, each one went up two by two.
