    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.
