Should i break up with my boyfriend. At school he doesn't really talk to me or do much when people are around. I feel like I am "the man" in the relationship and i have to initiate. I don't want to ruin our friendship and leave the memories we've had?

If you don't like the role that you play in the relationship, then talk it out with him. Is he normally shy with others around? Is he shy around you? What other things does he bring to the relationship? What do you bring to the relationship? Is it all one-sided? Examine the whole of this before cutting him off as your boyfriend. This shouldn't be about appearances but what he gives to you and what you give back to him.

You say you have discussed the issue with him already, and he hasn't changed.

At this point you have only two options:
1 - Stay in a relationship that you are obviously not comfortable with, or
2 - End the relationship and move on

Since the whole point of dating is to determine what type of relationship you want to spend your life in - and with what type of person - I advise you view this relationship as a "success" in that you have discovered a type of relationship you do NOT want ... And move one.
