CANFIELD, Ohio, June 2 (UPI) -- The principal of an Ohio high school said this year's graduating class of 282 students includes 10 sets of twins and one set of triplets.

Principal John Tullio of Canfield High School in Canfield, Ohio, said the students, the largest group of multiples he can recall in a single graduating class, have all been in the Canfield school system since kindergarten and are scheduled to graduate June 12, The Youngstown (Ohio) Vindicator reported Wednesday.

"I think it's really unique that out of 282 graduates we have so many sets of twins," Tullio said. "In fact, we have a photo of some of them from kindergarten that we're putting in the yearbook."

The multiples don't end with the class of 2011 -- the class of 2012 currently has three sets of twins enrolled in the school while the class of 2013 has one set and the class of 2014 has eight sets of twins.
