Case sensitive
$result = (substr($str,0,2) == 'st');

Open in new window

Case insensitve
$result = (substr(strtolower($str),0,2) == 'st');

Working sample
<?php
$tests = array (
  "street",
  "sTreet",
  "treet",
  "sstreet",
  "STREET",
  "astreet",
  "Street"
);
foreach($tests as $t) {
  $caseins =  (substr(strtolower($t),0,2) == 'st');
  $casesen = (substr($t,0,2) == 'st');
  if ($casesen) {
    echo "Case Sensitive match on [<b>{$t}</b>]<br/>";
  }
  if ($caseins) {
    echo "Case Insensitive match on [<b>{$t}</b>]<br/>";
  }
  if (!$caseins && !$casesen) {
    echo "[<b>{$t}</b>] does not start with 'st'<br/>";
  }
}

Open in new window

Output
Case Sensitive match on [street]
Case Insensitive match on [street]
Case Insensitive match on [sTreet]
[treet] does not start with 'st'
[sstreet] does not start with 'st'
Case Insensitive match on [STREET]
[astreet] does not start with 'st'
Case Insensitive match on [Street]
