The word is 'reprimanded'.
'Was too vocal' feels formal, but is suitable in that context. Less formally possibly: '...student when he started shouting during the class'.

Reprimand implied telling someone officially that you don't approve of someone's actions.Reversely "admonish" refers to warning someone unofficially .
Here, I presume, "admonish" appears normal.
