At one high school on Long Island, there are nine sets of twins and one set of triplets all graduating as part of the class of 2015.

"I didn't know we had this many twins, to be honest," senior Thomas Lee said.

They've all been together since kindergarten, and now, they're all set to leave JFK High School in Plainview.

"I didn't really know it was abnormal, because I've been around it," senior Amanda Schain said. "So I thought it was the normal thing, you normally have this many twins."

The twins and triplets have been attached to their siblings for years, so naturally they have a lot in common. But their college choice isn't one of them.

Out of the 21 multiples, only two of the triplets are going to the same college as their sibling.

"We didn't want to go to the same school, we both just ended up liking the same school," triplet Sydney Kurnit said.

For the first time in their lives, these students will not only be separated from their brothers and sisters, but also the group of multiples they've grown up with.

"I'm going to miss everyone, obviously, but I don't think I'm going to miss him that much," senior Andrew Miller said. "I just feel like i'm ready to be on my own, just try to be independent."

But truth be told, they will miss their other halves.

"I mean, I'll probably feel that way, but I don't know if I'd ever say it out loud," senior Matthew Sternberg said. "She'll feel it telepathically."

The multiples graduate at the end of the month, just in time to make room for seven sets of twins who will become seniors next year at the school.
