Im writing an english paper about the impact on students who fail standardized tests and I'm trying to say that failing or being labeled as remedial is "frowned upon" in society, but i don't want to use "frowned upon". help!

Perhaps "discouraged", or even "not advised"?

Check out the Thesaurus for frowned . You can use gawked or even sneered would work fine in your case. Use the Thesaurus link above to pick from the many options. I would even use 'negatively speculated' in society or even condemned in society (if its that serious!).
