Katy Perry to Appear in After School Special

9/14/2010 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Katy Perry has organized a surprise concert for students and staff at her old high school ... and it's all going down today -- as soon as the final bell rings.

According to sources close to the singer, Katy is dropping by Dos Pueblos HS near Santa Barbara, CA -- where she spent her freshman year -- to put on a free concert for the students and faculty.

An employee from the school tells TMZ it was all Katy's idea -- explaining that Perry's people reached out to them with the proposition ... and the school thought it would be a cool experience for the kids.

Obviously, the school is aware of Perry's "racier" songs -- like "I Kissed a Girl" -- and that's why they won't allow Katy to perform until after classes are out ... and students and/or parents that have issues with the content can leave if they so choose.

According to the school employee, Katy was also advised to keep things "school appropriate" -- and we're guessing that means no boob-grabbing.

I don't get the hate for her. She's a lot cooler than most in her position. People hate her for the stupidest reasons... "she can't sing" - neither can Britney.

My son goes to Dos Pueblos HS, and the students knew she was coming to perform for the last few weeks. It was only yesterday that the students were told that she was performing after school today. Therefore, there was no ruining of the surprise. Love Katy Perry!!

Mediocre talent, zero originality.
Katy Perry, what profit a person who gains the world, and loses their soul?

Saw Katy at Grad Night a couple of years back and she said she dropped out of high school and got her GED. Hopefully, she encourage these students to stay in school.
