How do I fit in at a new school?

I'm moving schools for the second time in my life. The first time was in second grade, so it was easy for me to make friends. Throughout middle school, I was very social, outgoing, and a bit loud. A bit later in 9th grade, I began to be a lot more quiet, awkward, and started dealing with anxiety. I feel like if I leave my school, my friends wouldn't really care. A lot of my friends talk to the people I don't get along with. And since I'm in a small school, it's hard to avoid running into people I'm not on good terms with. The new school is small as well, but is it bad to be too outgoing and straightforward? Should I remain quiet and wait for someone to approach me? Or should I try to give off the same energy I did in middle school, but risk being annoying to others? I'd be entering as a senior in high school, so how difficult would it be to make friends so late in the year? The students at my current school are people I've basically grown up with since elementary, but I feel like I should push myself out of my comfort zone?
