PEMBROKE, Mass. (WHDH/CNN) - At one school in the Northeast you may think you're seeing double, even triple.

But could sixteen sets of twins and a set of triplets in the same grade be record-breaking?

Thirty-five smiling seventh graders. At first glance, these 12 and 13-year-olds seem typical , but take a closer look and you might swear you're seeing double.

"Sometimes they just mix us up," said twin Eric Kaplowitz.

"I never thought a school would have so many pairs of twins or even a set of triplets. I think that's really cool," said twin Kristen Reiser.

"So we have 16 sets of twins and one set of triplets," said Donna McGarrigle, Principal of Pembroke Community Middle School.

Courtney and Kristen, Colleen and Liam, Colton and Camden, the list goes on. Thirty-five students either twins or triplets at Pembroke Community Middle School. Colton and Camden's dad thought it might be a record.

"It's just kind of amazing how many twins are in one school, and how the population of the school isn't huge," said Camden Kappa.

With only 313 seventh graders, the twins and triplets make up more than 10 percent of the class, but apparently when it comes to sets of multiples, they only tie the Guinness World Record. These kids though love being a part of it even without the official recognition.

"We're all like friends and we all like each other," said triplet Madison Monti.

They like to goof off like any other middle school students, but as for twin pranks, the principal says if they're pulling them she doesn't know about it.

Nick and Brandon say they only tricked a teacher once, it was in kindergarten and they got away with it until now.

You might be surprised to learn that with 35 seventh graders, twins, triplets, with all these sets of twins only three sets of them are identical.
