I am a huge supporter of a theory; if its not broken, don't fix it. I didn't know the subject of Math needed a serious overhaul but maybe felt that our kids needed to learn the things necessary to perform in this lifetime (basic math, decimals, percentages, simple algebra computations but not calculus, lol). But now schools who "accepted" Common core as their new math curriculum, I'm not an avid backer of it because it doesn't make any sense to me. My lil guy is in prek now but wasn't completely exposed yet since he is young. But as soon as this "thing" enters my house hold, I would like to place him in a private school that prefers the old math way of thinking.
In the subject, I wanted to know of,any public schools but then realize all public schools will prob support this garbage so does anyone know of any Brooklyn (or even the whole NYC) private schools that doesn't support Common core math? Thanks all!

Most private schools are now teaching some version of the CC math curriculum, even expensive ones like Convent of the Sacred Heart and Marymount. The difference with public schools is that privates do not engage in the high stakes standardized tests, so other subjects like social studies, arts, natural sciences are not compromised. My kid attends a private school and she seems to be handling the CC math topics very well.

If you absolutely want to avoid any kind of CC math, try a Waldorf school like Steiner, Garden City or Green Meadows.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will look into the institutions in the mean time. From what I read, CC seemed confusing and somewhat useless but in the interim, I will let him stay till kindergarten (if they teach it at the level) and see how he handles it for that year.

The one any only public school NOT using common core math is Hunter College Campus Schools. They are running their own game from K-12.
