    Default same high school

    ONACHU
    I have just heard this Japanese word for the first time.
    It is a very much shortened word for 'the same (junior)
    high school'.
    I think "We are onachu" means "We attended the same
    (junior) high school."
    Is there such a shotened word(s) in English to
    mean this?
    'Same same hi'?
    Thank you.
