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.

This would be awesome if she were actually an artist and not some corporate pop construction...

I think it's pretty cool. I still live in Santa Barbara and graduated Dos Pueblos in 2002. To comment #31, funny enough Jack Johnson performed at my senior year talent show at DPHS because his wife Kim was an English teacher of ours. Not too bad. Say what you want about the artists but it's quite an incredible event to have happen.

Okay first off that picture is a joke, so get over it. She did in fact go to Dos Pueblos High School. Dos Pueblos HS in really in the next town over from Santa Barbara, CA in Goleata, CA. For your information she knows what she is talking about when she talk about the town. She wrote and came up with her song "Last Friday Night(T.G.I.F)" here. She was excited to be here she said so a few time during the show. She even "Tweeted" and "Facebooked" about it. She went to prom with my friends brother before she was "Katy Perry". She may not have gone there for her whole HS career, but she did go there. It was very nice of her to come back and do something nice, even if she was just there to do some filming. Not many celbs will do this. I was at the concert and the only the school was aloud in and a few contest winners. Say what you want, but the concert was actually really fun! Also she sang at least 11 songs, so it's not like she just sang one or two songs, she made it fun and enjoyable for all.

Okay, for those of you who saw Katy's appearance at her high school when she called out that guy who wouldn't date her this is for you. Okay Katy, just because you have fame and money are you trying to say that you're a catch? Hardly! First of all your not all that attractive to begin with and your not a good singer either...I've heard you live and you suck! I heard that they interviewed that guy and he said he did indeed make the right choice by not dating you and instead dating and marrying his high school sweetheart. One thing I can gaurantee is that 10 years from now that guy will still be happily married and no one will know who the heck Katy Perry is.
