RIDGEWOOD, New Jersey (WCBS) — Ridgewood High School will hold its graduation ceremony Wednesday evening.

30 of the 419 graduates of the RHS class of 2024 have one thing in common: they are twins.

“Not really, I never realized there were so many twins,” said senior citizen and twin sister Charlotte Sands.

Most of the time it was twice as much fun.

“I would say the best thing is always knowing that someone is there for you and you are having the same experiences at the same time,” said twin Renee Peters.

Renee and her twin sister Juliet agree on this.

“I think it’s nice to have a kind of built-in best friend that you can always talk to, even at home,” said Juliet Peters.

Morgan and Cameron Anderson are identical twins. They say that has its disadvantages.

“Everyone thinks we’re the same person. And that’s really annoying,” Morgan said.

Most of the twins who graduate are not identical, and many have complete opposite personalities.

“We have similar circles of friends. But at the same time, we have different friends. And we like to do different things,” said Charlotte Sands.

Most twins go to different colleges. Henry Rivera goes to Michigan and his sister Charlotte goes to Michigan.

“I think I’m going to miss him, and I’m going to miss having a buddy like that,” Charlotte Rivera said.

In the United States, only about 3% of babies are twins. In Ridgewood’s graduating class, the number is more than twice that.

Graduates will not stand in line next to their twins. Students will be divided by height and gender.
