PLAINVIEW, N.Y., June 6 (UPI) -- Doublemint gum should shoot a commercial...

A Long Island high school will be graduating 10 sets of multiples this year, making this year's senior class quite notable.

For the time being, nine pairs of twins and one set of triplets are roaming the halls of John F. Kennedy High School in the Plainview-Old Bethpage School district.

"It's like, so weird to walk around and you see so many twins," student and twin Deniz Harned told CBS New York.

All in all, 21 students in a class of 369 are a twin or triplet.

"It is very unique for us. It really is," said John F. Kennedy High School principal James Murray. "This is a special year. It's not like this the preceding year or the following year."

After graduation on June 29, one set of twins will attend college together, but the rest will part ways -- for a while at least.
