I do pretty well in school (90+) and most people at my school know it. There are the kids that are just labelled smart and somehow I fell into that group. I also used to be in that clique that was all the so called "smart kids". Im afraid that people still associate me with those friends even though I am more outgoing now and hang out wit a different group. *(and no I didn't stop hanging out with them because of popularity, they just became to competitive with each other over marks and I found that annoying and unlike them school isn't all I want to talk about. 24/7)
I consider myself social enough, I talk to a lot of people, including guys but I still feel like they think I wouldn't date or something simply because some of my friends wouldn't do anything like that.
So how can I get rid of my former reputation?

Stepping into another social circle more could help, and (this is going to sound weird but hear me out) spread like a virus socially, make a friend and meet thier friends and befriend them, until you are in a completely new social circle however I will say that in school or hometowns sometimes people are just eternally branded by thier peers, if so there is a big world out there.0
