Teachers at Southbury, Connecticut's Pomperaug High School probably think they need to get their eyes checked. There are 13 sets of twins in the senior class alone, and those twins hope they can set a word record.

The current record holder is the Raymond J. Grey Jr. High School of Acton, Massachusetts. Guinness spokeswoman Jamie Panas told the newspaper that record was set in the 2006-07 academic school year with 10 sets of twins.

Pomperaug's senior class thinks they can easily beat that. Of the 322 students, there are four sets of identical twins and nine sets of fraternal equaling, 26 students who can try for the record.

Jake Critelli, a twin, is stoked about the possibility of breaking the world record. "You would expect another school system to have this, but not us. A lot of the twins already do stuff together, but we've never been together like this before," he said.
